Early in TEARS OF MOONS (Nov 19 – 22, 2020) the vast scope of the one-man play becomes apparent. My job is called different things,” says The Poet. In West Africa, its called a Griot. In Greece; Homer. On Franklin and Chicago; Crazy.” 

Antonio Dukes poetic tour-de-force travels through time-on the 5 bus – chronicling Americas ongoing epidemic of violence against Black people. Deeply personal and profoundly epic, Duke interweaves Haitian, Nigerian, and Ghanian spiritual figures and mythology to reckon with rage in the face of ceaseless bloodshed. Written and performed by Antonio Duke and directed by Ellen Fenster, the play was part of the 2018 Guthrie Emerging Artist Celebration and is being updated to conjure the present moment.

“Well trained and highly charismatic, Duke uses his craft to give this piece light and pathos.” Star Tribune, 2018.
