Free: Amplified, curated and organized by LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, invokes, remixes, and deconstructs Sekou Sundiata’s Free (1977), his only published book of poetry. This multimedia concert features a generation of New York and L.A. based poets and performing artists who came of age in the 1990s as well as a new generation of poets in their twenties inspired by both Sundiata and his heirs. Free: Amplified’s ensemble features HPrizm (Anti-Pop Consortium), Tamar-kali, Douglas Kearney, Patrick Rosal, Kamala Sankaram, Jasiri, Val-Jeanty, Kassa Overall, and Lisette Santiago.
Co-commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for Target Free Thursdays. Presented in collaboration with Lincoln Center Out of Doors.
