The Big Mix – Juneteenth
A Three-Week, Three-Holiday, One-of-a-Kind Performance Party
This summer, discover a new kind of entertainment: a performance that’s part party, part performance art, part vaudeville, part variety show, and a whole new way to look at three of our most joyous, most provocative, most historically challenging and most uniquely American holidays.
Conceived and directed by Little Island Artist-in-Residence Tina Landau, The Big Mix –Juneteenth will be hosted by Tony and Grammy Award nominee Joshua Henry with special acts from Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins, singer-songwriter Chanese Elifé, parkour artists Reap Genius & Falco, fire artist Sage Sovereign, Step It Up/HANAC Secret Society Dance Company, and Vy Higginsen’s Sing Harlem Choir Gospel for Teens, plus newly commissioned work from Brinae Ali & Tamar-kali, Ronvé O’Daniel, and Jacinth Greywoode.
You will come to be thrilled and amazed, and you will leave moved and inspired. There is a boundless mosaic of great artists, creators and performers in our land, and what better way for them to display their gifts than to show us how, through these holidays, we strive to become a better people and a more perfect union.
