Jason Moran with Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch: Jazz Fest
May 19, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
One event on May 19, 2018 at 8:00pm
Celebrated jazz pianist/composer/visual artist Jason Moran returns to the Walker to present a new multimedia performance that examines the various ways jazz functions: as freedom music, as a model of democracy, and as a prop. The work features Moran’s trio the Bandwagon (with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits) in collaboration with prescient artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, whose narrative-driven video installations explore the fluid nature of identity, community, and cultural subjectivity.
Walker Commission/World Premiere
