BDAC is excited to collaborate with BAAD!, Bronx Academy of Art and Dance, in our city-wide exploration of creative emancipation. The one-night-only concert features work by BDAC's fall artists-in-residence, Audrey Elaine Hailes, Jaimé Yawa Dzandu, and Malcolm-X El-Shabazz Betts performing on October 21 as a component of the BlacTinX Performance Festival.
Curatorial Statement || Experiments in Creative Emancipation
Audrey Elaine Hailes, Jaimé Yawa Dzandu, and Malcolm-X El-Shabazz Betts make work that is challenging, thick, messy, purposeful, durational, muscular, textured, and requires full-bodied participation from the audience. This is the kind of art we need. Cheers to these bold and necessary artists for making work to challenges the times and sets a vision for emancipation in action.
