Teaser Video for Word Becomes Flesh

Check out the teaser for Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s Word Becomes Flesh performance soon happening at La Pena!

Word Becomes Flesh is a fluid evening-length choreopoem written in the form of a narrative verse play. Presented as a series of performed letters to an unborn son, the piece uses poetry, dance and live music to document nine months of pregnancy from a young single father’s perspective. These performed letters incorporate elements of ritual, archetypes, and symbolic sites within the constructs of hip hop culture.
