Theatrical Jazz Conference

Join us for 3 days at the Theatrical Jazz Conference, happening June 13th-15th at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis! Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of exhilarating workshops, roundtable discussions, and performances! This three-day event celebrates and extends the legacy of groundbreaking artists Laurie Carlos, Sekou Sundiata, Ntozake Shange, and numerous others who revolutionized the American theater by invoking elements of classic jazz––such as call-and-response, polyphony, syncopation, and improvisation––as theatrical language.

Tickets grant full access to all of the incredible happenings throughout the three days, including a fabulous closing night dinner and party!

The conference will feature workshops, roundtable discussions, staged readings, performances, and more! Our amazing lineup of artists, scholars, and activists includes E.G. Bailey, Sharon Bridgforth, Aimee Bryant, Shá Cage, Ananya Chatterjea, Douglas Ewart, Ebony Noelle Golden, Virginia Grise, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Zell Miller III, Kym Moore, Sonja Parks, Megan Rivas, Sage Ni’Ja Whitson, Talvin Wilks, and more.
