Bold, experimental music from the 17th century collides with Spoken Word and Hip Hop Dance in an original blended performance that bends genres, tapping into the power of art "in the moment" and the nature of memory and hope.
Acclaimed spoken word performing artist Assétou Xango joins Baroque violinist Cynthia Miller Freivogel, six musicians, and three dancers from the Lion Heart Dance Crew. Original improvisations, plus music of Castello, Biber, Bach, Marini and Buxtehude, all performed on period instruments.
Featured on HBO's Brave New Voices in 2010, Assétou Xango is a two-time TEDxMileHigh Speaker and is currently the Poet Laureate of Aurora, Colorado and Lighthouse Writers Workshop's Poetry Out Loud coordinator. In all of her work, Xango is dedicated to the visibility of women and gender nonconforming people of color, and promoting the use of storytelling to dismantle divisions.
