A multimedia journey into the world of young urban men. Through a series of vignettes, The Just and The Blind takes us into under-heard experiences of incarcerated youth and their families. As "fathers of brown sons," composer-violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain and spoken-word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph have created this multi-media work in reaction to the tragedies of racial profiling and the prison-industrial complex. The longtime collaborators are joined by flexing street dance pioneer Drew Dollaz, bringing mind-blowing movement to the mix of music, words and evocative projections. In a special collaboration for the Dartmouth residency, the performance will also include vocalists led by Walt Cunningham, Dartmouth's director of pop ensembles. A 2017 TEDGlobal Fellow and Bessie nominee, Joseph graced the cover of Smithsonian Magazine as one of America's Top Young lnnovators in the Arts and Sciences and was an inaugural recipient of the United States Artists Rockefeller Fellowship, which annually recognizes 50 of the country's greatest living artists. Dance Magazine named him a Top Influencer in 2017. Roumain's acclaimed work as a composer and genre-bending violinist spans more than two decades and collaborators as diverse as Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover and Lady Gaga. Dollaz is a pioneer of flexing, a Brooklyn-based genre of street dance also referred to as bone breaking, which is characterized by rhythmic contortionist movements. His collaborators include Madonna, Rihanna and the New York City flexing collective Next Level Squad.
