Harlem Stage Presents: Nona Hendryx and Disciples of Sun Ra
Saturday, February 29, 2020
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Presented as part of the yearlong, citywide, Harlem Stage WaterWorks commissioned celebration of Sun Ra and his legacy. Presented in partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Sun Ra was a visionary artist and composer who infused his ecstatic performances with costumes and mythology that both looked back to ancient Egypt and forward to science fiction. Nona Hendryx has created a multisensory tribute to Sun Ra with music direction by Craig Harris, choreography by Francesca Harper, costume/ set design by Virgil Ortiz and invocations by Carl Hancock Rux, conceived specifically for the Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing.
