DUAT at Soho Rep Fall 2016


“shimmering harmony…an exploration of life and what lies beyond…a sumptuously homemade production.”

-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Put on your fanciest heels and strut over to the Connelly Theater…If you have loved Jomama Jones as a soul diva, you will lose your mind for her as a kind and encouraging teacher.”

– Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

“Jones’s…exuberantly odd concoction combines personal and communal histories with Egyptian mysticism, a passionate ode to libraries, and meditations on afterlives of all kinds…delightfully fantastical”

– Miriam Felton-Dansky, The Village Voice

“Afterwards, the word that kept spinning in my head as I wandered to the subway…was ‘joyous’…DUAT is fierce, funny and mournful; a sung, sometimes whispered, ode to race, queerness and difference.”

– Tom Wicker, Exeunt
