mudgu sankofa, a 15 year-old girl in  Kingston, Jamaica, is bridging the gap  between innocence and maturity. As blood – both life blood and death blood –  cycles through her coming of age st ory, mudgu encounters her cleanliness- obsessed granny, a machete-wielding stranger, her reggae-loving boyfriend and  her church-going aunty. Helping her trav erse her past, present and future lies  mudgu’s mother, who left her in search of a better life for herself and mudgu in  Canada. Fusing theatre and dub poetry, the extraordinary artist d’bi.young  anitafrika portrays mudgu with  wit, charisma and power. (Show Study Guide)
