Creative Research Fellow Daniel Alexander Jones meditates on nearly 25 years in performance art and theatre with a collection of essays as distinctive as his body of artistic work. BLUE, subtitled “notes from the crossroads”, marks the intersection of memoir, artistic history, spiritual journal, manifesto, and creative workbook. Jones is a celebrated artist who extends, through his work, an aesthetically daring and civically engaged lineage of art makers rooted in the Black American Avant-Garde and interdisciplinary traditions.
For BLUE NIGHT, Daniel will read excerpts from the book and share archival images and video. Todd London, Executive Director of the School of Drama, will then interview Daniel and lead a public Q&A session.
This event is free, but RSVP is requested. 
The Creative Fellowships Initiative is a new interdisciplinary pilot project at the University of Washington exploring the nature of creative research. The Initiative, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, seeks to advance the field of performing arts by supporting artists in the development of new work and by integrating the performing arts disciplines into the broader curriculum.
