WATERWORKS: JASON ‘TIMBUKTU’ DIAKITÉ’S "A DROP OF MIDNIGHT" @ 7: 30pm



Harlem Stage commissioned WaterWorks artist Jason ‘Timbuktu’ Diakité will debut his autobiographical theater project, A Drop of Midnight, directed by Farnaz Arbabi,  production dramaturgy by Jonathan McCrory, composed by Erik Hjärpe, and accompanied by live band, The Rakiem Walker Project.

One of Sweden’s biggest hip-hop artists and a best-selling author, Diakité takes us on a journey of cross-generational migration from the cotton fields of South Carolina to the little town of Lund, Sweden. It is a story of how he searches for his roots in order to bridge the gap between races, struggles and generations. A Drop Of Midnight explores the questions of being a son and being a father, of how one generation wants to escape the same past that the next generation wholeheartedly wants to embrace. What does blood memory, legacy, and ancestry mean to an African-American family that left Harlem for Sweden?
