Savage

April 10-13 at 7:30pm & April 14 at 2:00pm

Savage recounts the startling true tale of a Mbuti man, Ota Benga, taken in the early 1900’s by missionary and anthropologist Samuel Verner for exhibition at the St. Louis World’s Fair and, later, The Bronx Zoo. Displaced and cruelly exploited, Ota Benga is left to marginally exist in a world he does not understand, never able to return to his homeland. This world premiere seamlessly blends fiction, history, dance, traditional African Congo music, ragtime, as well as contemporary melodic/rap styles.
