Nationally touring poet Joe Davis combines music, performance, and dance in his latest show, The New Renaissance Pt. III. Davis refers to the evening as a “concert and choreopoem” in a nod to the late playwrite Ntozake Shange. The new production, which marks Davis’ directorial debut, features a cast of interdisciplinary artists, including students from Washburn High School’s Blackbox Theatre program, as well as local professional dancers, singers, musicians, poets, and artists. In the work, seven musicians discover that they are able to open trans-dimensional portals through music. It’s a story about healing, self-discovery, and transformation told through the lens of Afro-futurism. All ages.
