The New Original Works Festival continues with works by Carole Kim, Marsian De Lellis, and d. Sabela grimes.

A woman who falls in love with inanimate objects discovers that the Golden Gate Bridge has been cheating on her in Marsian De Lellis’ latest table-top puppetry creation.  


Compelling sound and movement artist d. Sabela grimes transcends the realms of Hip Hop and Afrofuturism in his genre-defying work Electrogynous, mixing poetry, street dance and infectious, otherworldly soundscapes to question hyper-stereotypes of masculinity and femininity in contemporary Black cultures.
