Our Story! Celebrating the African & African Experience

Our Story, directed by OrigiNation Founding Artistic Director and celebrated choreographer Shaumba Yandje Dibinga, is a compilation of poetry, dance, music, and scenes from historical and current events significant to African and African-American history.  The performance will take place on Saturday, March 25th at 3pm at the Strand Theater in Dorchester.   These performances will feature students from local colleges, high schools, and middle schools and OrigiNation’s professional youth dance companies.

This year’s production features actor Malik Mitchell, a Dorchester native who recently appeared at the SpeakEasy in Choir Boy (Bobby Marrow), Pass Over (Moses u/s), and actor Taalib Dibinga-Robinson who recently appeared in the Front Porch Arts Collective’s production of Exception to the Rule. For information on discounted tickets for members of the Black sororities and fraternities affectionately known as the Divine 9 and members of the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), please email info@originationinc.org.
