Re-Memori: Written by Nambi E. Kelley
ABOUT THE EVENT
Nambi E. Kelley’s
RE-MEMORI (World Premiere)
Directed by Chris Berry
Memori Brooks heals people through their hair. At least that’s what her hands do as her mind careens through the dreams of her kin, past and future — their puzzle of memories informing a painful family saga. A poetic tour de force, Nambi E. Kelley’s one-woman show fuses personal stories with American history, from enslavement to Black Lives Matter, and asks “Are the struggles of our ancestors ever really in the past?”
