Poet and noise musician Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) presents her first theatrical work, a futuristic exploration - art musical, part choreopoem, part play - of public/private ownership, housing, and technology set in a living room in a corporate-owned apartment complex. Framed by Ayewa's bold poetry and bolstered by new Moor Mother music performed live by Irreversible Entanglements and the Circuit City Band, Circuit City is an afrofuturist song cycle for our current climate.
Unflinching and raw in both its sociopolitical content and musical counterpart, Circuit City is bluntly powerful. Historically, some of the most inspired moments of free jazz were righteous responses to various forms of oppression faced by black communities, and Circuit City cements Moor Mother's voice in that lineage.
