Mexodus
Oct 21, 2021

Synopsis

A concept album that is also an intimate theatrical experience, Mexodus is inspired by the thousands of enslaved people in the United States who sought freedom in Mexico, rather than looking north. Through live looping and hip hop, Brian Quijada and Nygel D. Robinson explore an under-told chapter of the Underground Railroad and celebrate Black and brown bodies standing together against oppression.
