ABOUT THE PROJECT

Daniel Alexander Jones will be exploring the concept of Afromysticism as an anchor for his residency. This exploration will include 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.
