The Telling: Daniel Bernard Roumain

September 29 @ 8:00 am

Free

The Telling” is a new collection of original live works by renowned Haitian-American composer, violinist,  and activist Daniel Bernard Roumain. Through instrumental solos, dance, and chamber music, the artists reflect upon and respond to the forces of crisis and communion in our lives, telling stories of our anger, anguish, and enduring hope. Surrounded by singers, dancers, and strings at Providence’s majestic WaterFire Arts Center, how can we, the living, honor the lost?

“Twin Stars: Diamond Variations for Dae’Anna” is the centerpiece of the evening program. This complex chamber work is a cry for racial justice and a searing artistic response to the killing of Philando Castile. Castile was fatally shot by a police officer in 2016 during a traffic stop while driving with his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her four-year-old daughter, Dae’Anna. A Town Hall dialogue will follow the live concert. Featured artists: Becky Bass, Shura Baryshnikov, Melvin Chen, MusicWorks Collective, Daniel Bernard Roumain, Albert Rudolph Lee, Jay Breen and Victoria L. Awkward.
