Nicole Mitchell's Afrofuturist Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds
Tuesday, January 16th, 2018
7:00 PM
On Tuesday January 16, 2018 Winter Jazzfest Artist-in-Residence Nicole Mitchell presents Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds, using a science fiction narrative she created to pose the question: “What would a truly egalitarian world look like, with advanced technology existing in harmony with nature?” Opening the night will be 2017 MacArthur Fellow, Dr. Tyshawn Sorey presenting a solo percussion and synthesizer set, in his own idiosyncratic display of sonic Zen koans, Dadaist gestures, and masterful displays of intensity and restraint that will surely captivate Winter Jazzfest audiences.
