In the shadow of 9/11, the late New York artist Sekou Sundiata spent three years traveling through the U.S. gathering perspectives from ordinary Americans to create his last theater work, the 51st dream state. He sought to understand how he and others felt about being American during a time of terrorism and war and what future we could imagine and make possible. MAPP International Productions revives this expansive, illuminating work as an intimate performance in The Greene Space performed by the original cast of singers and musicans with LaTanya Hall taking over Sundiata's role as poet/narrator, directed by Arthur Yorinks, and hosted by John Schaefer as part of the Blink Your Eyes festival.
