Poster

Cult Nat Freaky Deke Go-Go was a musical and performance piece by Greg Tate that premiered at The Kitchen in 1987. Featuring over forty cast members, the piece notes the return of black aesthetic and cultural nationalism. The title comes from a 1986 Village Voice essay written by Tate called, “Cult Nat Meet Freaky Deke.” His writing “set it off” for a generation of “freaky-deke cult-nat” journalists, artists, and musicians. The piece presented a generation of black artists who introduced a new cultural aesthetic that highlighted the black experience.
