UMS - LaTasha Barnes' The Jazz Continuum

VENUE

Power Center

121 Fletcher Street
Ann Arbor, MI 48109

Supported by a live music ensemble, including a DJ/Turntablist, the all-star powerhouse cast of Explorers brings mind-bending musicality, spectacular athleticism, and boundless joy to each offering. This interdisciplinary and intergenerational experience investigates the energetic relationships and throughlines from Jazz and Lindy Hop to vibrant contemporary styles such as House, Hip-Hop, and more that developed from them. Each offering is also curated to amplify the cultural contributions of the local geographic area to the continuum.

The Jazz Continuum celebrates music and dances from across the diaspora, conjuring the spirits of Black dance elders and transporting audiences from Harlem and Cuba to New Orleans and Brazil in its ever-evolving celebration of being, dance, and music.


The Jazz Continuum was commissioned by Works & Process and developed in a Works & Process bubble residency at Catskill Mountain Foundation (2021) made possible through the generous support of the Mellon Foundation and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
