Big Ideas in Improvisation: Fred Moten & Vijay Iyer

Friday, May 28, 2021; 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the inaugural Big Ideas in Improvisation lecture, co-presented by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation. This annual series will showcase provocative thinkers and creative practitioners in a public forum as they share ideas and insights about the power, expansive force, and urgency of improvisation. These public lectures, aimed at a general audience, will encourage us to consider how the artistic practices of improvisation developed by creative practitioners can translate into broader spheres of influence and action. Improvisational practices can put pressure on unquestioned assumptions, help us discover new ways of being, and put into action potential solutions to some of our most pressing contemporary global challenges. The Big Ideas in Improvisation lecture series is free and open to all — check back soon for the registration link.
