Preview Performances
Carl Hancock Rux
Anne Bogart ‘74
Theo Bleckmann

A poetic meditation on heritage, love, and the willpower to overcome atrocity, this collaboration by three landmark American artists, tells the story of Carl Einstein, the influential German-Jewish art historian and one of the first critics to affirm the importance of African sculpture. Through music, video, and text, writer-performer Carl Hancock Rux, director Anne Bogart, and composer-musician Theo Bleckmann examine the atrocities of occupation and the discovery of African art by the West to weave a mesmerizing narrative on the fight for freedom.
Friday night's performance is sold out. Limited Availability Saturday.
