Apocalypse and Accountibilty: d’bi.young anitafrika on her new Afro-futurist dub-opera
By Tom Keefer
d’bi.young anitafrika talks with Real People’s Media about Bleeders, her new Afro-futurist dub-opera which is currently playing in the Toronto Summer Works festival. d’bi talks about her creative process, the play’s relationship to Indigenous teachings, and why she thinks that this play is the most impactful of her works thus far.
Bleeders takes place in the future – the Pickering Nuclear Plant has exploded, and a group of Black womxn form a small council. How in the midst of government oppression, repression of the gender revolution, and ecological degradation do we still find hope?
