New York Live Arts

New York Live Arts (Live Arts) continues its conversation series, Bill Chats, on November 11th, 2020. Bill T. Jones, MacArthur Genius Award National Medal of Arts awardee and Artistic Director of New York Live Arts, will have a conversation with the artists and organizers behind The Future is Present. Including Charlotte Brathwaite, Janani Balasubramanian, Justin Hicks, and Sunder Ganglani, the conversation is presented in partnership with Fisher Center at Bard and will be live-streamed for free with RSVP. For more information and to RSVP, please visit newyorklivearts.org.

The Future is Present is a seven-week performance and action laboratory that centers the voices and vision of Black and Indigenous young people, and builds concentric circles of solidarity around their demands on our collective future. These demands will be amplified through a series of rigorous, joyful, and high-distribution artistic interventions to be unveiled in January 2021.


Charlotte Brathwaite’s genre-defying works illuminate the realities and the dreams of the marginalized highlighting unheard, unseen and overlooked stories.

Janani Balasubramanian deploys interdisciplinary, collaborative research in service of a world where beauty, care and imagination are the terms on which we wage life.

Justin Hicks is a multidisciplinary artist and songwriter who creates music and uses sound to explore identity and value.

Sunder Ganglani is an artist as care-taker working in the intersection of forms, creative practices and movements for social change.
