This innovative new work enlivens the current conversation around race and equity, mixing dance and theater to create a fully original, groundbreaking work. It is based on a momentous public conversation held in 1970 between anthropologist Margaret Mead and novelist James Baldwin. A Rap On Race uses a series of choreographed dance duets juxtaposed with verbal duets, which were gleaned from this conversation, as a means to reveal the complexities involved when talking about race. The piece features the world-renowned dancers of Spectrum Dance Theater and narration by Julie Briskman as Mead and Donald Byrd as Baldwin. This production reinvigorates the historic conversation that took place nearly 50 years ago and yet is still relevant today. Conceived by Tony-nominated choreographer Donald Byrd and Pulitzer-nominated actress/playwright Anna Deavere Smith, the work features an original score by jazz great Charles Mingus.
