UAB Department Of Theatre Savage - World Premiere Musical
An Original Musical Conceived & Developed by Karla Koskinen
Book and Lyrics by Tommy Newman
Music by Jaime Lozano and Tommy Newman
Translations provided by Dr. Kazadi Wa Mukuna
This new and original musical recounts the startling true tale of a Mbuti man, Ota Benga, taken in the early 1900s by missionary and anthropologist Samuel Verner for exhibition at the St. Louis World’s Fair and, later, The Bronx Zoo. Displaced and cruelly exploited, Ota Benga is left to marginally exist in a world he does not understand, never able to return to his homeland. This world premiere seamlessly blends fiction, history, dance, traditional African Congo music, ragtime, as well as contemporary melodic/rap styles.
