Episode Summary: Haddy and Yassi brought the crystal ball into the gallery to discuss “Art and Future.” Then they sat down for an interview with writer, performer, and teaching artist, Jasmine Henri Jordan. Finally, this week’s provocation asks the future generation for input on your art.
Bio: Jasmine Henri Jordan is a writer, performer, and teaching artist living in Chicago. She is an ensemble member at The Neo-Futurists, a company member at Playmakers Laboratory, and a founding member of Hot Kitchen Collective. She is a Florida State University School of Theatre alum. Her work is overwhelmingly about queerness, Blackness, pop culture, youth, and making messes.
Provocation: Ask a kid what kind of art they want to see. Make it. Ask for their feedback. Then re-make it.
