MUSIC: MY FREEDOM will play a limited off-Broadway run at The Tank, Feb. 8- March 3, 2013. Six women from South Africa and the United States will sing, unamplified and A cappella, the music that makes them feel free and joyous in the intimate 62 seat Playroom Theater.
MUSIC: MY FREEDOM is conceived and directed by Thuli Dumakude, who played the role of Rafiki for 27 months on Broadway in THE LION KING. "After ten years back in South Africa, I just wanted to sing in the presence of other women who use music, as I have, to heal the many wounds of life," commented Dumakude. "We are doing this naked, so to speak... no microphones and no instruments except the human voice."
MUSIC: MY FREEDOM will be performed by Debbie Carter, Thuli Dumakude, Brenda Fair, Ghanniyya Green, D.D.Sims and Silindile Sokutu. Among them they have over 130 years of experience in all forums of musical performances.
