NextLOOK: Dominic Green
Set in the year 2093, this theatre work follows Davu, a young black man, through the ruins of a futuristic African-American history museum. There, Davu encounters androids who help him uncover a past unrealized, as they reenact stories of both the heroism and the destruction of Davu’s predecessors. The Final Genocide is a story of the possibilities and dangers faced by black men in America.
