Afro Urban Society x Bakanal de Afrique in association with Dance Mission Theater, presents

What Had Happened Was…,An Afro-Urban Musical
November 10 7PM The Flight Deck, Oakland
November 16 & 17, 8PM, Dance Mission Theater, SF
Created by Nkeiruka Oruche | Directed by Tossie Long

Get all wrapped up in a hot blooded performance of dance, storytelling, video, afrobeats, soca, hip-hop, blues, dancehall, rumba, soukous, and electrifying visuals! A trail of personal stories will guide as we swivel along a timeline of Afro Urban culture from its birthplace on the cities of Africa, to the beats on the streets of Black America and the world. Ain't no mountain high enough as we raise the roof and raise the questions "Where did we come from?" "Where are we going?" When will we arrive?!"

This event is presented as part of the Afro Urban Society's 2018 Bakanal de Afrique, Afro Urban Festival
