Desdemona: Rokia Traoré, Tina Benko

An intimate and profound staged concert by Toni Morrison, Rokia Traoré, Peter Sellars.

In Desdemona, Rokia Traoré and Toni Morrison, two women of African and African American origin, come together to create a work inspired by an 'invisible' character from one of Shakespeare's most racially charged plays.

In response to Peter Sellars' 2009 Othello, Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison and Malian singer/songwriter Rokia Traoré collaborate to create an intimate and profound conversation between Shakespeare's Desdemona and her African nurse Barbary from beyond the grave.

Moving beyond centuries of colonialism and racism, two women share stories, songs and hope for a different future.
