Daaimah also enjoys pushing the boundaries of theatre - In Everyday Afroplay (The Bushwick Starr, JACK) she creates text for theatrical experiences which blur the lines between the visual art, poetry, and theatre.  From this cauldron of text new work is generated for example : The Weekend on Flaming Road , The Chronicles of Cardigan and Khente and   3 Hole Press has published a new play titled, The Immeasurable Want of Light
