Rhythm & Roots Presents Conversations with Maya Angelou – The Chair Speaks

Posted by on Thursday, January 29, 2015 in events.

Rhythm and Roots Performance Company’s 2015 annual show, “The Chair Speaks: Conversations with Maya Angelou” explores the works of recently deceased cultural icon Maya Angelou. Through Vanderbilt student and community performances, this show celebrates the life, influences, and accomplishments of our subject. It aims to both educate the public on her relevance as well as invite them to enjoy her story, embodying her through her works and our experiences, engaging the audience in an artistic conversation, overcoming ideas of death and forgetfulness.
