d’bi Young Anitafrika performs the third installment in her sankofa trilogy: word!sound!powah! The monodrama depicts young dub poet benu sankofa who is swept up in the violence of the 2012 national election in Jamaica. The country is on the cusp of a political coup, and in the heat of the struggle between young radicals and the establishment, benu is accused of involvement in a political assassination. Amidst all the corruption and turmoil, who will stand up for the land they love? benu ultimately finds strength in her maternal ancestors to fight for the freedom she believes in, with her courage and dub poetry as her primary tools. Following the performance, a question and answer period about the play and the issues it raises takes place with d’bi and the Corner Brook audience. Produced by Stephanie McKenzie and Shanda Williams, Grenfell Campus, Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
