Event Description

Tuesday, November 6th at 7:30pm, Open Space and the University of Victoria's Department of Writing present Open Word: Readings and Ideas with dub poet and playwright-performer d'bi.young anitafrika.

A triple Dora award-winning published playwright-performer, director-dramaturge and emerging scholar, anitafrika is also the creator of the intersectional, decolonialist praxis, the Anitafrika Method. She is the founding Artistic Director of the Watah Theatre and the Anitafrika Retreat Centre, where she teaches artists from around the world. Addressing issues of gender, sexuality, race, class and the human experience through her vast field of artistic knowledge, anitafrika is about to embark upon postgraduate studies in London UK where she will be researching the Anitafrika Method and Theatre of Ritual-Self-Recovery as outgrowths of Dub Poetry and African-Caribbean Theatre.

Starting at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00), d'bi.young will share from her forthcoming autobiography, Memoir of an Ugly Duckling. The reading will be followed by a conversation with UVic Writing Department Chair and non-fiction writer David Leach.

Admission is free / by donation.
