The Personal is Political: These Simple Truths & Cozi Sa Wala: Redux

Joanna Hoffman’s The Personal is Political is presented with an excerpt of Abena Koomson’s Cozi Sa Wala: Redux

The Personal is Political: These Simple Truths

written by and featuring Joanna Hoffman

directed by Sherri Eden Barber

“The Personal is Political: These Simple Truths” explores how current events surrounding issues such as gay marriage, bullying and xenophobia are actually rooted in very personal, lived experiences. Through spoken word poetry reflecting on these issues, Joanna hopes to inspire others to base political beliefs on compassion and empathy.

 

Cozi Sa Wala: Redux

written by and featuring Abena Koomson

directed by Keith Oncale

Cozi Sa Wala: Redux is a one-person show that unites the two worlds of an American-born Ghanaian woman by intersecting the Fanti stories of her father with the commentary of a community of Ghanaians attending a funeral party. This version of the “solo” show will bring the voices of the piece into an interactive conversation through video, audio looping, and photography.
