The Brooklyn Academy of Music is having an encore screening of *National Theatre Live’s FELA! on Thursday, February 10th at 2pm. This production (filmed live in HD at the National Theatre in London and then broadcast around the world via satellite) sold-out it’s first two screenings in January at BAM.
The screening will be on in two theaters, one theater will be for the general public and the other theater is reserved for new parents/caregivers and will feature a host of baby-friendly amenities including stroller valet, raised house lights, lower volume, and changing tables.
A provocative and wholly unique hybrid of dance, theatre and music, FELA! explores the world of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), FELA! reveals Kuti’s controversial life as an artist and political activist. Featuring many of Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs and Bill T. Jones’ visionary staging, FELA! comes via Broadway to London and the National Theatre.
