(Re)current Unrest is an evening length immersive performance installation “ritual” built upon the sonic foundation of Steve Reich’s three earliest works: It’s Gonna Rain (parts 1 and 2), Come Out, and Pendulum. The piece is an investigation of legacy, authorship, and the history of black art and protest through the lens of the erasure of the Africanist presence inside of Reich’s compositions. Inspired by James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me, (Re)current Unrest is an open movement letter from a member of Generation X to the Millennial Generation, saying “stay woke.”

Estimated artist fee: Estimates do not include housing, local ground transportation, and freight; additional community engagement and dialogic options available: $25,000/one week; $35,000/two weeks
