June 20 & June 21 at the East Bay Community Space Oakland, CA

Sprint tells the coming-of-age story of Nana, a Queer Black child of Ghanaian immigrants coming up in the U.S. in the 90’s and 2000’s.


Based off an original screenplay and collection of written works by Nana Duffuor, Sprint explores themes of anti-blackness and self-denial, sexual violence and self-destruction, healing and resistance. The multidisciplinary stage performance blends film, theater, poetry, music, and dance.

The show will run as part of the 2019 National Queer Arts Festival for its second year under the direction of Oakland-based performance artist, Dazie Grego-Sykes.
