Searching for Eastman
Presented by Canadian Stage
Created by the wind in the leaves collective based on poetry of charles c smith
Julius Eastman (1940-1990) was a Black and queer minimalist composer. Outspoken about his social identities, Eastman was a provocative character who infused his remarkable compositions with these sensibilities. Through music, poetry, theatre, dance, and video, Searching for Eastman reveals the complexities of this extraordinary artist and his art.
This performance contains course language and some scenes of violence.
