First performed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph in 2003, Word Becomes Flesh returns to the stage, re-invented with a new generation. A series of performed letters to his unborn son, Word Becomes Flesh uses spoken word, dance and live music to document nine months of pregnancy from a young single father's perspective. Now performed by a six-member ensemble, this choreopoem critically, lyrically and choeographically examines fatherhood in the black community.
