In this virtual multimedia and interactive performance program, Russell presents a unique engagement with Paul Robeson—and the texts he performed and produced as an internationally renowned vocalist and humanitarian—bringing this exploration directly to the audience through personal testimony, musical performance, and informal interaction with performance participants and the audience.
Through this piece, Russell explores the permeable borders between the performer and performance, the artistic and political, the eminent and imminent, using film, personal testimony, and live performance as a way to explore what the words Robeson spoke and performed mean—or could mean—for the 21st century.
