Steve Connell and Sekou Andrews: The Word Begins

Los Angeles

 

“This cheerful two-man, spoken-word romp through territories expected (race relations) and unusual (dirty ideas for Hallmark cards) stars an adorable odd couple.” —Time Out New York

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

Mashing up spoken word, comedy and Hip-Hop, Steve Connell and Sekou Andrews deliver hyper-kinetic performances in this fresh new satire that examines the current American cultural landscape as it appears to a young white man and a young black man. Nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards, The Word Begins follows the journey of two men as they explore race, faith and morality in America—from the inner cities to the heartland. Throughout their compelling journey, Steve and Sekou move through a chaotic landscape as they attempt to come to terms with the realities of this American moment.
