Modesto Flako Jimenez & Oye Group: ¡Oye! For My Dear Brooklyn [World Premiere]

“Listen to the beats / The rhythm of my Bushwick streets.” Brooklyn impresario Modesto Flako Jimenez conjures his beloved borough in this bilingual elegy, told through poems, projections, and music. With lyrical brilliance and irreverent play, ¡Oye! For My Dear Brooklyn complicates our perceptions of race, language, and gentrification and calls us to be truly present to ask the question: “What is my moral worth?”
