Coming this December!

The Multicultural Arts Center Presents

For Nina
Saturday, December 16, at 7:30pm

We exhale to remember, we perform to call in. Performing art uniquely positions a person to look for and embody freedom. Nina Simone is one of the most beautiful Freedom Seekers. Her work paved the way for Black artists and underrepresented voices to claim liberation. This piece is titled “For Nina” as a thank you letter for the work she has done and as a reflection on the lineage - old and young - of artists like Nina Simone. “For Nina” will celebrate the songs of Nina Simone through dance by Victoria Lynn Awkward, vocals by Desiré Graham, piano by Hua Ye (Jane), lighting design by Elmer Martinez, sets by Mikayla Williams and will include guest youth dancers.
