Earshot Jazz – Uprooted: The Journey of Jazz Dance
November 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, happening 2 times
Jazz in movement and music is ever-evolving. As jazz dance celebrates its many interpretations, it pays homage to its lineage. Its history and artistic roots in the expression of enslaved peoples strengthen the art form, turning its practice into a metaphor for resistance and a struggle for acceptance.
The rapid kaleidoscope of movement and music in Uprooted speaks more clearly than any artificial narrative. Setting testimonials from dedicated practitioners of jazz dance against a linear examination of American history, Uprooted is an opportunity to experience the nuanced place that the art form finds itself in today.
