The word FERAL has been tagged on buildings across the city. FX (Francis Xavier), is behind this politically motivated campaign. He is young, Black, and full to bursting with ideas about himself and the world around him. On a warm night in late July, FX and the local police share a moment of violence. The city and country respond…but what about FX, his family, friends, and the complex ideas that he hoped to communicate? 

Amidst the national conversation, “Black Lives Matter,” FERAL looks at youth, idealism, and desperation. It all starts with a word spray-painted on a wall. 

MPAACT (Ma'at Production Association of Afrikan Centered Theatre), grown from a collective of like-minded individuals, exists to develop, nurture, and sustain Afrikan Centered Theatre [ACT], an artistic expression founded in the many cultures and traditions of the Afrikan continent and its Diaspora. MPAACT produces and educates with the goal of increasing understanding and appreciation of ACT.
