“Eat Little and Live Long” a meal with Makeda Thomas @ On the Chihuly Bridge

More than before, I value embodied knowledges – not as ephemeral – but as the only true materiality.” “`Eat Little and Live Long’ is a new archive; a gathering that merges food, dance, and storytelling; an opportunity with artists and...

Performance: The Light Fantastical by Makeda Thomas
Exhilarating modern dance performance that explores Caribbean culture The Museum is thrilled to host world-renowned Trinidadian dancer and choreographer, Makeda Thomas, on August 16.

This improvisational piece is imbued with metaphor for art and technology that comes out of Afrofuturist culture—or more appropriately, “Caribbean Futurisms.” It considers how Caribbean cultural forms navigate time and space, and innovate new histories, sciences, and aesthetics. As part of the performance,...
