"Infants of the Spring" is a theater performance adapted by Ifa Bayeza from the 1932 novel by Wallace Thurman and directed by Ifa Bayeza.
The performance is about a group of African-American thinkers, writers, artists, musicians, and poets and living under one roof in a boarding house during the Harlem Renaissance. Their collective creative thought and energy fosters brilliant work about race, gender, sex, class and gentrification.
Bayeza’s vibrant adaptation of Thurman’s satirical roman a clef challenges us to consider the power of art to effect social change today.
