Va Arts Festival-Raisin' Cane: A Harlem Renaissance Academy
This inspiring, revelatory show captures the daring and the genius of the Harlem Renaissance, a period of extraordinary artistic achievement by African-Americans. Celebrating the music and writing of the era, including the words of Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and W.E.B. DuBois, the performance is a dazzling collage of thoughts, songs, and images, a panoramic experience that stars Jasmine Guy, renowned for her performances in film (Harlem Nights, Spike Lee’s School Daze), television (A Different World), and on Broadway (The Wiz, Chicago). The beguiling musical score is performed by the Avery Sharpe Trio, led by acclaimed jazz bassist Avery Sharpe.Need directions? Enter your street address and we'll get you there!
