Fringe 2022 - Top Ten - #2 - Ancestors Rising – Goddard’s Gardens (Joseph Michael Davis)

It’s post-apocalyptic America...or what's left of it. After using music-powered experiments to time travel in search of a way to save a dying humanity, "afrophysicist" JahDavis returns home to join his fellow freedom fighters in rebuilding a new world out of the ashes of the old. Interweaving music, poetry, and storytelling, Ancestors Rising is an intimate and immersive portrayal of joy and resilience.

Original music, poetry, storytelling, joy and resilience - throw a little sci-fi and time travel on the pile and I’m in.  Don’t know anything about the artists involved and there isn’t any other information on the show page other than the description but kudos to the person who came up with that synopsis for Ancestors Rising, I’m sold.
