Community Live Arts Reading: New and Dangerous Ideas by Christopher Johnson

Come join Christopher Johnson for the first reading of the 4th project to be incubated as part of AS220’s Community Live Arts Residency Initiative.

Inspired by Roger Williams, Bill T. Jones and Everett Stage and School, “New and Dangerous Ideas” is a multi media experience, challenging ideas of criminalizing race and expatriating police while humanizing statistics by using personal stories of several members of different communities intersected with spoken word poetry, framed in music, dance and video.

In lieu of present national conversation on mass incarceration, police profiling, police violence and race, the goal is to humanize the statistics by using personal experiences of the writer as well as interviewed members of different communities including Police officers and other members of the criminal justice system.
