EVENT INFORMATION

Internationally renowned choreographer Bill T. Jones joins the Carpenter Center and CSULB Department of Dance for the Southern California premiere of his landmark piece—Reading Mercy and the Artificial Nigger, a work inspired by a Flannery O’Connor short story, that transcends boundaries as it mixes dance, literature and race. The finest dancers from the CSULB Department of Dance will be handpicked to perform the work, in an evening that will include three premier works by noted CSULB faculty choreographers—Gerald Casel, Sophie Monat, and Andrew Vaca.
