Native Voices at the Autry’s World Premiere of
Wings of Night Sky, Wings of Morning Light
by Joy Harjo (Mvskoke)

Starring Joy Harjo (Mvskoke) and
featuring Larry Mitchell
Directed by Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)

March 12 – 29, 2009
From musician, poet, and now playwright Joy Harjo (Mvskoke) comes a deeply compelling personal journey of struggle, displacement, self-discovery, and ultimately healing. Invoking spoken word, storytelling, and song, Harjo reflects on life stories, the tales and traditions of her people, and takes a few turns blowing a mean jazz saxophone. An allegorical work of tremendous power, Wings demonstrates how theater and art can bring life full circle.
