Kim Brockington, stage and film actress, is excited to present her one-woman show Zora to Bahamian audiences. Fresh from a critically-acclaimed performance at the National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem North Carolina, Kim looks forward to bringing the play to Nassau. As she says, “I am coming to tell a story of a great woman who loved Bahamians!  ZORA !….  who also studied and did lots of anthropology work in The Bahamas, so I know she would love this and I believe the Bahamian people will as well. Zora wanted to preserve cultures and the ways of our people and never lost sight of what made us as wonderful and great as we are. She used Bahamian songs and dances in some of her work. So it is most appropriate for her story to be included in this wonderful festival. Also as an African American woman, I feel honoured to tell the story of this great woman of history who wanted to preserve our history by studying anthropology and writing about all people of colour.”
She is always especially happy to perform before audiences who share Zora’s African heritage, and the ninety-minute production includes forty minutes of interaction with her audiences, where Kim engages with patrons and enables them truly to meet Zora herself. As Jerome Preston Bates, fellow actor and director, observes, “Kim literally lives and breathes this character. Kim has captured the spirit of this woman. This is not an actress acting. This is someone speaking about their life.”
