In this Grassroots Leadership & the Arts for Social Change Corner, Rad Pereira and Jan Cohen-Cruz discuss socially engaged performance in the context of the pandemic, Black Lives Matter, and the attempted U.S. coup of January 2021. In this corner, which is a modified version of a chapter in their new book, Meeting the Moment: Socially Engaged Performance, 1965-2020, by Those Who Lived It, they scan the “immediate performative responses to the circumstances of the pandemic, artists’ growing consciousness of the possibility of seeing their work on the world stage, and the rise of resistance and loss.” Corner editor Susan J. Erenrich provides an introduction to the piece.
