Imani Uzuri: Hush Arbor Concert
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 @ 7:30pm
Harlem Stage Gatehouse | 150 Convent Avenue, New York, NY 10031
Vocalist and composer Imani Uzuri has created a mercurial musical meditation on “liminality” (standing at the threshold) exploring themes of death, rebirth, impermanence and transcendence. This contemporary chamber opera, is inspired by hidden gathering places called “hush arbors” created by enslaved African Americans in wooded areas in the South to secretly worship, commune and strategize rebellion.
