A Queer, Black, Sci-Fi, Staged Concert Experience By Derek Lee McPhatter, Directed by Christopher Burris Musical Direction by Dayna Lynn Nuckolls Bring The Beat Back follows a young man struggling to reconcile his sexuality with his faith. Our hero journeys towards self- acceptance and affirming spirituality as conservative religious authorities and a queer subculture clash over music at the center of his world. Set in a futuristic, groove-centered alternative reality, Bring the Beat Back is inspired by urban gay “ball culture,” the evolution of house music and the rich Afro-futurist tradition in popular culture.
