“I’m on a mission to look for my history… I want a relationship with my ancestors… I took my grandmother’s middle name just because I like the way it sounded: Almeida, the Glorious. I will pull from my ancestors to create my new self.” The AMY Project’s 2017 ensemble of young creators bring together monologue, poetry, movement and music in this original creation. Almeida (The Glorious) explores personal power, our relationships with our ancestors and descendants, and how our given and chosen names shape who we are.”
