About the Show
“The Secrets of Slave Songs” intimately re-imagines Traditional Negro Spirituals and their direct relation to the African-American quest for freedom. This full-length piece—born from the belief that the Traditional Negro Spiritual was a secret language between slaves—powerfully presents the heartbreak of attempted escape, the sorrow of failure, and the triumph of liberation.
Through dramatic movement and song, “The Secrets of Slave Songs” explores the complicated, intertwined relationships between white Americans and African slaves as the origin of continued complex relationships between white and black Americans.
