Set on a juking boat in the Mississippi Delta, The River See Theatrical Jazz Performance Installation takes place mid ritual as SEE (the main character) grows into her calling as the answered prayer. In this performance installation, the audience is invited to participate in the performance as it is being “composed” live. SEE’s world of rowdy spirit guides, juking women, queers, deviants and Seers, asks that all present participate in SEE’s Journey as she joins the first Great African-American Migration.

A series of blues stories set on a river boat, with juking women, queers, deviants and Seers, River See is the prayer before the first Great African American Migration (1910). Experienced through the heart of, SEE, a young woman-in-training, we journey through a world where the living-the dead-the unborn/the past-the present-the future co-exist. Lil NayNay, Grandma-Aunt Porkchopps, Big Suzi, Mr. Goodies, Mrs. Shine, Ms. Ada and she ole ass dog Lil Lady shepherd the way. With rowdy spirit guides and loving elders, SEE grows into her calling as the answered prayer, as she is prepared to be sent “to the North.”
