The act of “declassifying” is a process of revealing, exposing what is hidden from view and obscured, not spoken. Declassified Memory Fragment is a work of dance, live concert, and theater created as an open letter to life in countries—specifically Kenya, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe—where everyday life is subjected to restrictions and cultural expectations of secrecy and privacy, even within the family.

An exploration of African lifestyles, cultures, beauty, complexities, and politics, the performance ranges from tremendous energy to haunting quiet, from beauty to terror. Led by an all-male cast from Burkina Faso, with an electrifying live band that at times supports and at other times takes center stage with the dancers, Declassified Memory Fragment caustically and humorously stages a two-tier society where craving for power simultaneously creates and unravels friendships—and yet a brotherhood remains.
