Over the course of his residency, Daniel Alexander Jones explored the concept of Afromysticism. His exploration included the development of a contextual framework for a volume of collected writings, a new music theatre piece, and a series of performance writings. Rooted in civic, practical and esoteric processes, ideas of Afromysticism engage a holistic approach to art making geared toward creating emancipatory and transformative experiences.
