Before Platform Projects was even a thought in my mind, during the summer of 2016, while working with Sunu Thiossane: Youth Development Agency’s English and Arts Immersion Camp in Dakar I worked on the short film "Larabilaran: Le Talibe Et Moi."
It is without a doubt in my mind that this project, the experience of working with Sunu, and the people I met while in Dakar have changed the course of my life and my artistic ambitions forever. I am so lucky to have been part of such a talented team in Dakar and now back in New York.
With that said, I am beyond excited to announce that Platform Projects’ first collaborative production, Larabilaran: Le Talibe Et Moi will premier in New York on May 13th from 7-10pm at BAM Fisher as part of a fundraiser for Sunu Thiossane.
Tickets can be purchased here!
Also, a big thanks to all friends and family (and Baruch College) who made this possible.
Hope to see you there!
