Presented as a series of letters to an unborn son, Word Becomes Flesh confronts fatherhood in urban communities and the mythology of the black male body—from cotton field to athletic field and all spaces in between. Marc Bamuthi Joseph re-invents his 2003 solo piece for a new generation with an ensemble cast using spoken word, music, and contemporary and hip-hop dance.   Photo Credit: Jati Lindsay/Hip-Hop Theater Festival
