On Saturday, April 29. Rotimi Agbabiaka will join a host of San Francisco's finest performers, led by the brilliant choreographer, Rashad Pridgen, in celebrating the life and legacy of Prince.

Taking place one year and seven days after the passing of Prince, the #MQ4Prince
A Masquerade 4 Prince... will pay homage to the elevation of Prince as an ancestor - reclaiming the concepts of death and celebration originating from the African Diaspora. The masquerade will illuminate Prince's influence on people of color in the LGBTQ community through invocation, street dance performance and procession.

The performance is free to attend and will begin at 6.30pm-8.00pm at the Luggage Store Entrance Gallery (1007 Market Street, San Francisco). This site-specific dance-performance, drag-memorial and creative offering will culminate with a full-body masquerade suit in tribute to Prince Nelson Rogers. The performance procession will end at the Tenderloin National Forest (501 Ellis Street) with a community celebration and reception.

1984 As a playwright Michael Gene Sullivan adaptation of George Orwell's 1984 will be playing at the Williamston Theatre, Williamston, Michigan March 23rd - April 23 and at the Drama Theatre on Podal, Kiev, Ukraine Fall, 2017. Script available at Playscripts, Inc.

Winston Smith is a cog in the giant machine of the State. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "help" of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his "Thought-Crimes" before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience -- which acts as a silent witness to his torture. This is a ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
