Join us for Studies in Freedom, an evening of jazz with dance and poetry collaboration featuring musician William Parker and dancer/poet Patricia Nicholson.
“Studies in Freedom combines music, words and dance to tell a story of the collective heart yearning for Freedom. It expresses our greatest visions, our desire to attain what is best not only for ourselves, but for all. We will speak in the language of physical gesture and the motion of energy as music and as dance. We will use words that escape from our souls to speak our hearts.”
William will play his shakahachi and dosengoni. This collaborative set will be followed by a Q&A focusing on “the role of the artist in our community and the importance of maintaining our humanity.” In light of current events, William and Patricia invite artists and audience members to join their discussion.
