•we're honoring “when I get home”, the latest project from the patron saint of Houston herself. come through and enjoy wine + cotton candy + music that’s good for the soul, as we listen to the album and screen the short film.
•wear earth tones or anything to pay homage to the album, Solo, or your journey to home. There will be wine on deck but BYOB drinks and other thangs to share. Vegan cotton candy by Wonderpuff.
• “call me if you get lost” is an ode to the connection between art and community—its an opportunity for us to gather and a reminder that we all need someone to call on sometimes. this project has so much synergy with the MAPS exhibit so we’re happy to make this happen. Can’t wait to see you there.
"They Do Not Know Harlem" is an immersive dance-theatre piece that explores the intersections of blackness, queerness and HOME through the eyes of Transatlantic commuter and the seer who has seen much - James Arthur Baldwin. As we voyage through the constructs of home, we must sing a Gospel. We must dance the Juba. We then go tell it on the mountain. And so it is.
"They Do Not Know Harlem" is written and choreographed by Tristan Andre Parks, the child of Mary Robinson-Corley and Christopher Andre Parks. This work is further affirmation to know that Jimmy belongs to us all. Tristan is overjoyed to further debut this timely work in progress at NorthStar Church of the Arts as a prelude to his residency at Duke University's Slippage Lab in May 2019.
this piece was produced in collaboration with young, gifted, and broke with creative oversight by Marcella Camara.
