CAC COMMISSION

WORLD PREMIERE

One Giant Step is a performance that uses the melody of “To Be Young, Gifted and Black” as a constraining and liberating force. Channeling the spirit of Nina Simone and her close friend Lorraine Hansberry, performers step through a series of conversations, tutorials, exercises, and musical tasks that lead them, dramatically, to a place of knowing and understanding in real time. With performers and sculptural props dispersed throughout the house, the performance is experienced by the audience as practice and revelation rather than presentation.

 

Mikrokosmos is the ongoing musical collaboration of Justin Hicks and Steffani Jemison; the subject, form, and material of Mikrokosmos is black musical study without end.
