Djassi Dacosta Johnson - dance / Shayna Dulberger - bass
Djassi Dacosta Johnson and Shayna Dulberber's current collaboration for the Vision Festival is an exploration of what the foundations are for “a just future” in this country as interpreted through the tradition of American Anthems written in the 1950s. Their musical and dance synthesis will explore the structured improvisational forms born in the Harlem Renaissance, in the birth of Jazz, as well as seeped in the history of Judson Church and the modern dance movement. Their collaborations are inspired by the conversation between music and dance, sound and song, past and future, and the art and artists that laid the foundations for the art that is now.
