*THIS IS AN ONLINE MASTERCLASS STREAMING HERE. NO TICKET IS REQUIRED, BUT A $10 DONATION IS SUGGESTED*
Karan will teach songs related to social justice, discussing the song’s history and context. Singing songs from her extensive repertoire and exploring the texts and meaning behind the words, participants will join Karan in looking at the performance of social justice, orality and providing meaning through performativity. Karan will lead discussion on issues raised within a performance and how to navigate the need to speak on social justice and a sense of fairness towards the audience’s ‘night out’. Learn how Karan navigates this tricky balancing act within her own performance, asking the important question: is it alright to be political onstage? (60 mins)
This will stream at passim.org/stream on January 17th, at 2pm ET. No ticket purchase is required, but a $10 donation is suggested.
