The evening will include a new work guided by the Gurunsi divination system bagger, a ritual where form and structure are suggested through the meaning inherent in thrown cowrie shells. Also on the program, Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO is inspired by Badolo's rich family legacy as it traces the journey of his great-great-grandfather; the lessons his father taught him; and the responsibility he feels to his own son about their ancestry. BOOM!, a new duet by Cynthia Oliver featuring Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet, opens the performance program. A nugget of a larger work to come, BOOM! exposes and manipulates notions of building a life and a relationship - of a woman to herself, her history, her present and future. Negotiating and renegotiating the rules of personhood, fate and consequence, BOOM! simultaneously reveals, resists and submits to the structures and shape of a performance. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=128875 New York Live Arts New York Live Arts
