BECOMING: AT HOME IN THE WORLD

World-renowned choreographer, dancer, writer and Artistic Director of New York Live Arts Bill T. Jones joins Meany Center for the Performing Arts this season as a guest curator for this bold new series of events. Featuring five artists working at the cutting edge of their disciplines, the Becoming events are inspired by Jones’ deep interest in “what it takes to be a well-rounded citizen of the world in these fractious times.”

“What unites these artists is perhaps a desire to redefine what is and was, to push against the status quo, crack it open and let the light come through.”

No one event will be like any other. The commonality that unites them is work that is intersectional, inclusive and unapologetic in its call for social justice — and the fierce originality of the artists who created it.  Single tickets go on sale August 3.
