The Big Mix – Independence Day
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 –Independence Day will be hosted by Tony Award winner Faith Prince with special acts from Ty Defoe, Judy Kuhn, Jaime Lozano & Florencia Cuenca, and FogoAzul NYC Brazilian American Style Samba Reggae Band, plus newly commissioned work from Chanese Elifé, and Ronvé O’Daniel. Additional artists will be announced at a later date.
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.
