Joshua and Anna Deavere Smith to collaborate in residency at the University of Chicago this January
In January, Joshua and Anna Deavere Smith will begin a three-week residency at the University of Chicago where they will host discussions with faculty and other artists and teach masterclasses and workshops for students. Additionally, Joshua and Anna will workshop and perform their collaborative theater and music piece On Grace, which the two artists premiered at San Francisco's Grace Catherdral in March 2012. The work explore the meaning of “grace”, using Anna's signature brand of theater combined with social commentary. The collaboration and residency will culminate in a presentation at the Harris Theater on Tuesday, January 21 called "Conversations on Grace," which will include the full performance of On Grace.
