Craig Harris presents: Brown Butterfly
Craig Harris, a student of and performer with the late Afrofuturism pioneer Sun Ra, is a trombonist, composer, bandleader, and gifted sonic shaman. He presents “Brown Butterfly,” a multi-media work based on the life and movement of Muhammad Ali, the world-renowned heavyweight champion boxer revered as one of the greatest athletes of all time. Harris’s Brown Butterfly is poetry in motion, set to live music. The performance skillfully captures The Champ’s speed, wit, and spirit in which the audience will experience Ali in all his physical and verbal glory.
“Brown Butterfly” will present the power of a man formerly known as Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., who evolved into a humanitarian with great integrity and who was a beacon of hope for all ages, all races, and people of all beliefs.
This event is co-presented and co-produced by Craig Harris, Arts & Education Continuum, and AKILA WORKSONGS.
