A woman unhappy in her faith community meets an attractive man at a jazz brunch who practices an African indigenous religion.

About this event

DENISE checked all the "honorable woman" boxes: educated, celibate, active in ministry. It was supposed to bring her heavenly bliss. Instead, she's depressed and lonely.

Exhausted by the dismissal of "Black girl joy," she slips into a Sunday jazz brunch and drowns herself in bottomless mimosas. That is where she meets WAYNE (ADEYEMI), an easy-to-look-at, socially conscious man, who reveals that he practices Yoruba, an African indigenous religion (the Ifa Orisha tradition). The ever-devout Christian Denise says they can be friends, but nothing more.

Then they become more.

“Ancient Of Ways: For Colored Girls Who’ve Considered Ifa When Jesus Came Up Short” is an interfaith love story and multidisciplinary production incorporating storytelling, drumming and dance - modern, liturgical, and African.
