Black Bodies, Black Art: An Evening of Performance
These performances explore the awareness of black artists being at once hyper visible and invisible, shamed and desired. The works are a reckoning of the extremes on the spectrum where black artists find themselves. Each work is an attempt by the artist, to release as well as to control the narrative of what it means to produce ‘Black Art’.
Hosted by Shannon Stott, the evening will include dance by Ashé Arts Austin and Ballet Afrique Contemporary Dance, music by Honey Son + Olivia, drag performances by Sha’nyia Ellis Narcisse, and improv by Twins.
