Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane company created Afterwardsness as a socially-distanced work in response to our twin pandemics: COVID-19 and on-going violence against Black bodies. Three collaborators from the production discuss the personal and political implications of the work, and how creating performance in response to systemic problems is both an act of protest and of patriotism.
ABOUT THE SPOTLIGHT SERIES: The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series is a collaborative partnership between the University Honors Program, Institute for Advanced Study, and Northrop to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around timely topics of interest. The six-part 2021-22 series will focus on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement. The moderator for all six events will be Kevin Lindsey, CEO of Minnesota Humanities Center. All events are Thursdays 3:30-5:00 pm and may be attended in Northrop’s Best Buy Theater or via Zoom webinar. Audience participation via Q&A sessions will follow each event.
