The Cosmic Synthesis of Sun Ra and Afrofuturism: Order out of Chaos
Catch a performance from rock goddess Nona Hendryx, Afrofuturist film screenings, and more. Harlem Stage is a legendary uptown venue that for over 35 years has promoted the creative legacy of Harlem and artists of color from around the corner and across the globe. New this year, Harlem Stage is offering a yearlong Afrofuturism initiative, The Cosmic Synthesis of Sun Ra and Afrofuturism Series. The series, which includes three performances this fall, is a celebration of the spiritual, sonic and social impact of the Sun Ra's work curated by Artistic Director of Afrofuturism, Nona Hendryx. The series launches on September 20th with Order Out of Chaos, a night of Afrofuturistic short films, music and a 'Mind Share'; a panel of filmmakers, musical artists, and performances. Audiences can enjoy screenings of "Prototype," where a programmer conducts a painful empathy test on lifelike androids in an attempt to win her mother's approval, and "ROXË15," which focuses on Roxë Jones, a virtual reality programmer in a stark, near-future New York City. Hell-bent on a getting to a better life, she bets her future on technology. Film screenings are curated by filmmakers Craig T. Williams and Celia C. Peters, who will lead a post-screening conversation that will include Craig Harris and Nona Hendryx, and will examine and celebrate the genre that is flipping the script on Black narratives. The evening culminates in an epic performance featuring rock goddess and futurist Nona Hendryx and Darian Dauchan of The Brobot Johnson Experience.
