Ephemeral Artifacts: Travis Knights is a non-linear journey through the evolution of jazz and tap. It celebrates the body as a space of transmission and dance as a defiant act of creating knowledge. Featuring tap artist Travis Knights this work integrates music, video and storytelling. It unravels the body as a site of consequence and celebrates the act of dancing as a form of resistance.
