Afternoon Jam Session

Are you woke? The Afternoon Jam Session brings together some of the nation’s leading young poets, Jookin’ innovator Lil Buck, writer/activist Yosimar Reyes, and more special guests for a spirited hour of cross-disciplinary performance, collaboration, and discussion. Lyrical, musical, and physical acrobatics will introduce ideas and issues central to this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival — from truth and identity to making it in the America we know. This session is led by dancer turned director Damian Woetzel.

Festival: 2017
