Get a deeper understanding of modern race relations with a star-studded performance on Thursday night. On April 11th, Terence Blanchard, Rennie Harris, and Andrew Scott will present Caravan: A Revolution on the Road at Bass Concert Hall. Grab your tickets now to experience this transformative event!

Multiple Grammy-winning composer and trumpeter Terence Blanchard and his E-Collective quintet join forces with hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris’ dance company, Puremovement, and sculptor/projection-mapping artist Andrew Scott in this multi-disciplinary performance that transcends racial and social boundaries and breathes life into conversations on personal and collective identity in relation to social and political structures.

Caravan: A Revolution on the Road is a captivating new program that explores black lives in the 21st century through Blanchard’s fusion of jazz, R&B, blues, funk, and soul, interwoven with Harris’ African American dance styles, and Scott’s conceptually-based visual projections and installations, which are rooted in African and African American art and culture. Blanchard and his E-Collective ensemble’s goal is to heal hearts and open minds with this powerful performance.

Caravan: A Revolution on the Road will premier in Austin at Bass Concert Hall on Thursday, April 11th at 8:00 p.m. Ticket holders are also invited to attend a pre-performance talk with sculptor Andrew Scott at 7:15 p.m., 45 minutes prior to the show. Admission to see Caravan is $40. Special pricing is available for UT faculty and staff, members, military, and students.
