Ursula Rucker – “My Father’s Daughter”
[Rucker’s] visceral live performances elicit chills.
Spoken word artist, poet and songstress Ursula Rucker delivers a live memoir, a story of both her life and her mother’s, juxtaposed. Raw and soulful, Rucker’s concisely wrought texts blend with projected video imagery to reflect upon two women’s intertwined lives, and to powerfully illuminate a personal story of survival. Featuring live accompaniment by guitarist Tim Motzer, My Father’s Daughter emerges as an epic poem, one that charts Rucker’s life journey and the struggles that have shaped her into the woman she is today.
