When he heard the news about the assassination of Malcolm X at Audubon Theater, Amiri Baraka (then LeRoi Jones)thought that the entire world had changed for him, indefinitely. The date was February 21, 1965. It marked the beginning of a new era during which the Black audiences responded to the spirit of Black Arts Movement ın a variety of genres but particularly in performance arts. The ‘instant theatre’ - in Paul Carter Harrison’s words - had thus begun. Please send 250-500 word abstracts and brief biographical statements: firstname.lastname@example.org
