Poet and performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s new multi-disciplinary work considers soccer--and the African American experience--as a conduit for both joy and corruption. With music drawn from multiple traditions, dance, poetry, shadow work, and film, /peh-LO-tah/ connects the beautiful game to our beautiful, complex, interconnected lives.
