JCA Signature Series: Donald Byrd and the Spectrum Dance Theater
Social Justice and Just Causes: exploring questions central to the making of artistic works whose focus is social justice and just causes. Sharing insights into his process and video examples from recent works, Donald Byrd considers if one can be trained to create these kinds of works in an authentic and personal way? What groundwork is necessary? What tools are needed? What is the balance of the didactic, the authentic/personal, and the aesthetic in making work that is social issue driven?
The Jordan College of the Arts would like to thank Dr. Marianne Williams Tobias for her generous support of the Fall 2020 JCA Signature Series.
