    d'bi.young anitafrika’s The Sanfoka Trilogy
    Tarragon Theatre 30 BRIDGMAN AVENUE Toronto, ON

    Tarragon Theatre is proud to present the premiere of the complete sankofa trilogy, written and performed by d’bi.young anitafrika, an award-winning afrikan-jamaican-canadian playwright and actor.  the sankofa trilogy features word!sound!powah! in repertory with blood.claat and benu in Tarragon’s Extra Spaceword!sound!powah!

    opens November 4 and runs to December 4, 2011. Tickets range from $20-45 (inclusive of HST) and are available by calling the box office at 416-531-1827 or by visiting www.tarragontheatre.com

    the sankofa trilogy features three extraordinary stories of three powerful women—mugdu sankofa, her daughter sekesu and her granddaughter benu—and their resolute belief in blood and truth. At the heart of this trilogy—and much of d’bi.young’s work—are the spirit of sankofa (“return and get it”), and the mythical sankofa bird of the Ashanti, with its head turned backwards, holding an egg (the future) in its beak.
