Enough Vo5 for the Universe

by Melanie Maria Goodreaux

directed by Melanie Maria Goodreaux

Dr. Dorinda flies to meet her Secret Love, Daniel, the Last White Man on Earth. 

We are an Afro-futuristic Theater Piece about America in the year 2097, being ruled by 3 fierce African American female survivors of a worldwide cataclysm presented as a dark comedy. We have projections, original animations, and a talented cast actors. These women face a death-dealing battle over love, power, and fried chicken as they ponder the mysterious whereabouts of the Last Black Man on Earth. Malik Yoba appears via projection as male-female fusion of God named, "Oprah Obama Omama." Our piece uses stark symbols, dark comedy, and surrealism to deal with themes of racial disparity, afro-feminism, death, and loneliness. It's a world of flying hair weave, deletions, as well as poignant exploration of W.E. Dubois' "Talented Tenth" theory, and Ralph Ellison's 'The Invisible Man."
