NATIVITY: A Performance by Rosa-Johan Uddoh

December 7, 2023 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for NATIVITY, a performance by Rosa-Johan Uddoh that offers a history of Black performance in the West, through a parody of the traditional Christian nativity play. This short epic tale focuses on the Black character of ‘Balthazar’, one of the three Kings who visited the baby Jesus at his birth and who became a vital part of one of the most popular motifs in Western art history.

With the generous support of the Art Fund and in collaboration with Performance Exchange, where the performance premiered in 2022, NATIVITY will be acquired for The Women’s Art Collection, marking the first time a performance has entered the Collection.
