American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University, under the leadership of Terrie and Bradley Bloom Artistic Director Diane Paulus and Executive Producer Diane Borger, will present visionary artist Daniel Alexander Jones‘ concert and visitation with alter-ego Jomama Jones, Black Light at A.R.T.’s club theater space OBERON September 19 through September 20, 2019.
In Black Light, Jones performs as the iconic Jomama Jones in a spiritual revival for turbulent times. This intimate journey through the darkness of personal and political upheaval and the shards of shattered illusions is illuminated by spontaneous humor and what The New Yorker calls Jones’ “very particular radiance.”
With all original music, drawing influence from Prince, Sade, Diana Ross, and Tina Turner, Black Light is marked by the Black American Freedom movement, Afromysticism, goddess mythology, and divination. This immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story, and song.
Jomama Jones last appeared in Boston in 2013 in Radiate at The Theatre Offensive.
