Antonio’s Song / I Was Dreaming of a Son

Antonio’s Song / I Was Dreaming of a Son

By Dael Orlandersmith & Antonio Edwards Suarez, Directed by Mark Clements

April 28 – May 28 in the Owen Theatre

Opening Night is May 8, 2023

“A deep and personal dive into the formation of a man” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

A poetic journey of a artist/dancer/father questioning the balance of his passions—art, culture, family. From Brooklyn to Massachusetts to Russia, Antonio struggles to reconcile multiple ethnic identities. He wrestles with the legacy of stereotypes of masculinity while recognizing there is beauty in manhood and becoming a father. Powerful poetry is intermixed with original movement, music and projected imagery in a “brilliant, movingly done [and] virtuosic performance by Suarez” (DC Metro).
