ABOUT THE GRANT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Four hundred years in the making, Bakanal de Afrique (BdA), is an Afro Urban festival that celebrates the many histories and traditions blended into the odyssey of the African Diaspora. At the heart of this year’s festival is an immersive dance-theater performance guided by the question “Wey You Dey?”. “Wey You Dey?” asks people of the diaspora to reflect on a specific moment in their lives — e.g. July 12, 1973, 6:30pm — and create a story of that moment.
