BILL CHATS: w/ Charlotte Brathwaite, Janani Balasubramanian, Justin Hicks & Sunder Ganglani
FREE WITH RSVP
Presented in partnership with The Fisher Center at Bard
As part of the ongoing Bill Chats series, Bill T. Jones will be in conversation with the creative team behind The Future is Present: A Casting the Vote Project, a high impact, liberatory media project that engages a core group of black and indigenous youth activists and art makers to imagine us into a better world. The Future is Present (TFP) is a seven-week performance and action laboratory that centers the voices and vision of Black and Indigenous young people, and builds concentric circles of solidarity around their demands on our collective future. These demands will be amplified through a series of rigorous, joyful, and high-distribution artistic interventions.
Charlotte Brathwaite’s genre-defying works illuminate the realities and the dreams of the marginalized highlighting unheard, unseen and overlooked stories
Janani Balasubramanian deploys interdisciplinary, collaborative research in service of a world where beauty, care and imagination are the terms on which we wage life.
Justin Hicks is a multidisciplinary artist and songwriter who creates music and uses sound to explore identity and value.
Sunder Ganglani is an artist as care-taker working in the intersection of forms, creative practices and movements for social change.
The Future is Present: A Casting the Vote Project is a co-production of The Fisher Center at Bard, the Bard Theater & Performance Program, and Casting the Vote. Co-commissioned by Live Arts Bard and New York Live Arts
