With three days of consecutive performances, Radical Recitations is an arts festival that not only celebrates the human right to artistic freedom of expression and the radical power of storytelling to catalyze social change – it is a call to action in defense of artistic freedom. Radical Recitations is presented by Artistic Freedom Initiative (AFI), who last year brought you Revolutions & Movements at Dupont Underground.
This year, AFI has partnered with Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, Studio Theatre, Brooklyn Music School, and Tamizdat to bring you performances both powerful and personal by revolutionary international artists NOURA MINT SEYMALI, TOTO KISAKU, and KING RAAM.
As artists are increasingly censored, imprisoned, restricted from moving freely across borders, tortured, or even killed, it is more critical than ever that we safeguard the right to free expression and zealously champion the courageous artists who exercise it. Join us! Radical Recitations is being held Friday, November 15 – Sunday, November 17, 2019 in Washington DC
