Part of the Ordway's 2017-2018 Music & Movement Series.
In 1970, two towering personalities of the American intelligentsia, black author and social critic James Baldwin and white anthropologist Margaret Mead, sat together and recorded a conversation on what is a defining subject of the American experience—race. Now, more than 40 years later, two contemporary artistic icons, Anna Deavere Smith and legendary choreographer Donald Byrd of Spectrum Dance Theater, re-imagine this monumental moment in history into a genre-obliterating evening of “theater for the 21st Century.”
