Four Electric Ghosts

Mendi + Keith Obadike

$15.00

“…Four Electric Ghosts redefines the word ‘electrifying,’ fusing spirit and technology in an enchanting postmodern myth. Their retro-futurist assemblage of story and song, music and movement short-circuits the gap between tradition and modernity in an enthralling contemporary black aesthetic…” — Tavia Nyong’o, New York University

Product Description

“[Four Electric Ghosts speaks] in a fabulist way from the deep, secret interior of our imaginations and subconscious . . . What more could we ask for from a night at the theatre than Dance, Music, Sex, Romance, Mysticism, and a newfangled notion of Global Village Literature?” — Greg Tate, author of  Midnight Lightning: Jimi Hendrix and the Black Experience and director, Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

“hauntingly beautiful and progressive” –Angelique V. Nixon, Conscious Vibration

“In this multimedia performance . . . all was sung / told / danced in the style of Grace Jones, June Tyson and Laurie Anderson, TV on The Radio, Takashi Murakami and the Urban Bush Women. My jaw was on the floor.” — Vijay Iyer, Artforum, Best of The Year Issue

“[T]his was one of the freshest and most interesting performances I’ve caught in years . . . a vision about new ways of thinking about living and learning and a vivid, veritable (Afro-Diasporic-)futurist parable.”  — John Keene, J’s Theater and Rutgers University

“Mendi + Keith Obadike’s Four Electric Ghosts redefines the word ‘electrifying,’ fusing spirit and technology in an enchanting postmodern myth. Their retro-futurist assemblage of story and song, music and movement short-circuits the gap between tradition and modernity in an enthralling contemporary black aesthetic. They give us an original and resonant vision of a world where Tutuola and Iwatani meet and groove.” — Tavia Nyong’o, New York University
