An Interdisciplinary Exploration of West African Mythology, Tradition and Migration

By Samuel Boateng
April 29-30

Sunsum is Spirit is an immersive experience that combines original music with traditional and contemporary African dance, movement and storytelling. This surrealist performance captures a life-changing journey through pre-independence Ghana. Three travelers set out to capture a malevolent spirit, and are thrown into a whirlwind of supernatural encounters. They hear rumors of sudden disappearances and kidnappings in neighboring towns, but have no idea these are signs of a new and expanding commerce — the Atlantic slave trade.
