ABOUT THE SHOW
A conversation with Daphne Brooks. This talk considers the underground performance practices of four black women musicians: jazz vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant, the mysterious blues duo Geeshie Wiley and Elvie Thomas, and superstar pop icon Beyonce. It considers the ways that each of these artists have produced repertoires that amount to laboratories wherein cultural memory and future possibility intersect and yield new meaning.
This event is part of the yearlong lecture series Performative Ethics: Embodied Representation in the Commons.
