#Unwanted at The Shed

  • The Shed: Griffin Theater 545 W. 30th Street, New York, New York 10001 New York, NY USA (map)

The multimedia, genre-bending song cycle #UNWANTED is written for a unique ensemble that includes voice, woodwinds, brass, percussion, synthesizers, and electronics interacting with video and visuals by Monique Muse Dood. #UNWANTED highlights the ways in which technology reinforces oppressive social relations that deepen gender and racial inequity. Al-Sabir focuses on Black people’s experience in the digital realm while engaging topics such as navigating spaces of whiteness, unwelcome DMs, online relationships, the need for weed, and what it means to create and strongly value a virtual community and home.
