Your next favorite artist is right here in Boston. WBUR keeps its finger on the pulse of Boston's diverse and lively arts and culture scene on-air, online...and now on stage. Join us for “Ones to Watch: Boston’s Emerging Artists,” an eight-part series featuring up-and-coming artists across an array of genres: dance, music, performance art, storytelling, poetry and theater.
Join us for a screening of the latest documentary from Beheard.world, a collective of performing artists, filmmakers and educators. The film follows 12 Boston-based poets and dancers as they travel from Jackson, MS up the Great Migration Trail to Chicago, performing an original piece called "Invisible: Imprints of Racism."
At each showing they facilitate talkbacks with audiences, exploring and confronting issues of race. As these dramatic experiences unfold on the tour, the film captures the performers’ own struggles with identity and race, shedding light on the deeper truths of racial divisions from diverse perspectives.
A Q&A with choreographer Anna Myer, filmmaker Jay Paris and performers from the film will follow the screening. Watch the film trailer below.
Premiere: $25.00 (includes reserved seating)
