BLACKBIRD, FLY is a LIVE performance that weaves together an enduring tapestry of movement, narrative, music, and Haitian folklore to engage audiences in dialog about critical questions of our time. Steeped in a hip-hop aesthetic, this intimate duet between two preeminent sons of Haitian immigrants —composer/violinist DBR, and arts activist & spoken word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph —unveils their life stories in search for their identity and role models, and explores universal themes of tolerance and inclusion.
