Brava is thrilled to throw open our doors and usher our audiences back in for a special in-person screening of Rotimi Agbabiaka's film Manifesto!

In Manifesto's cinematic release, we find "Rotimi" basking in the new day of America! There's a vaccine for the virus, democracy has been saved, and now, more than ever, Black Lives Matter. As live entertainment prepares to make its comeback, a queer, black actor decides to create a manifesto for theatre in our brave new world. But just when a revolutionary artist thinks they know all the answers, that's when they need to start asking some new questions.

Using comedy, drag, music, dance, and "an endless parade of captivating characters and scenes" (KQED), Rotimi Agbabiaka's solo film gives an inside look at the terminally inequitable entertainment industry and then leaps forward to imagine the future of revolutionary art in a time when diversity is on trend. Hailed as a "lightening bolt of insight and delightful bitterness" (Mission Local), Manifesto shines an illuminating light on the triumphs, failings, and absurdities of our current moment.

The film runs 50 minutes and will be followed by a live Q & A with Manifesto's writer/performer Rotimi Agbabiaka and director Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe. The bar will be stocked and open for business!
