Heroes Are Gang Leaders: The Day We Gave The Globes Back, A Sing Along! + Conversation: The Freedom Reform Forms Of Performance

6:00pm EST

September 30, 2020


ISSUE streams a performance from Heroes Are Gang Leaders, a literary free jazz ensemble of writers, artists and musicians founded in 2014 as a tribute to late poet, activist and jazz critic Amiri Baraka. The performance features an expansive fourteen-member band as well as multiple embedded solos and ensemble formations.

The performance will take place at ISSUE’s 22 Boerum Theater, followed by a discussion focusing on the ways in which the boundaries between units of sound and units of meaning are eliminated in order to create improvisational literature.
