Word Becomes Flesh Written and Directed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph
October 10, 2013
UMass Amherst Campus
Word Becomes Flesh integrates spoken word, hip-hop theatre, contemporary dance, and live music to document nine months of pregnancy from a young single father's perspective. The play fuses tender stories, playful wit and at times, purposeful rage to give voice to complexities and contradictions surrounding race, gender, and the black male identity in the 21st century.
Post- show discussion/reception with the artists in the Campus Center Reading Room immediately following the performance.
