You have three more chances to catch a performance of Complex Movements - Beware of the Dandelions (work-in-progress) at the Charles Wright Museum of African America History.
Beware of the Dandelions is an immersive environment built on the aesthetics of hiphop designed to embody the communal lessons found within complex sciences. Through interactive hip-hop performance, handcrafted songs, video projection mapping, creative technologies, and performative installations explore the relationship between art, music, science and social justice movements. Inspired by Grace Lee Boggs and decentralized community-led social justice movements, the project provokes audience members to participate through physical and vocal responses, feeding their own concepts into improvised sections that support the premise that change occurs through critical connections rather than critical mass. Beware of the Dandelions leaves participants with an opportunity to investigate a new theory of change for the world.
Complex Movements is a Detroit-based artist collective composed of graphic designer/fine artist Wesley Taylor, music producer/filmmaker Waajeed, hip-hop lyricist/activist Invincible, and creative technologist Carlos (L05) Garcia.
Allied Media Projects is a sponsor of grants for Complex Movements from the NEA and the MAP Fund.
