What's 'the word'?


Baltimoreans Bashi and Mitchell Ferguson call their theater company The Men of Nommo, based on the term for "the word" in the language of the Dogon people of Mali. Beginning Sunday, they will give the first of four performances -- scattered throughout the season -- of "Locks & Links," a choreopoem about the struggle of the African-American male, at the Theatre Project.

Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 7:30 p.m. this Sunday, and again Nov. 12, Dec. 3 and Feb. 11. Tickets are $14. Call (410) 752-8558.
