That Went Like This and This Went Like ThatDaniel Alexander Jones convenes an intergenerational conversation among several members of one extended-family-constellation of artists of color in avant-garde performance and experimental theatre. A conjuring. An invitation to communion. A dance among alternate histories, rumors, and surprising connections. A little bit of fussing. A chance to ask Robbie’s question, “who are your people?” and to wonder, together, “why does it matter?” Featuring vanguard artists Vinie Burrows, Robbie McCauley, Jessica Hagedorn, along with Helga Davis, Rhonda Ross, Stacey Karen Robinson, Mayaa Boateng and more!

Daniel Alexander Jones’s wildflower body of work grows in relationship to a wide range of audiences. Duat premiered at Soho Rep in 2016 to critical acclaim. His other performance pieces and plays include Radiate, Phoenix Fabrik, Blood:Shock:Boogie, Bel Canto, and the musical, Bright Now Beyond, written with composer Bobby Halvorson; and his multi-chapter series of solo autobiographical performances, The Book of Daniel, made with musician Walter Kitundu and director Tea Alagic. His performance, Black Light, featuring his alter-ego Jomama Jones, will run as part of the Public Theater’s 2017-2018 season at Joe’s Pub. Daniel was named a 2015 Doris Duke Artist, in recognition of his risk-taking practice, and a 2016 USA Artist Fellow.
