Foregrounding concepts of transparency, radical diversity and inclusion, Zachary Watkins, Raven Chacon, Sharmi Basu, Morgan Craft, Ava Mendoza, and The Living Earth Show present AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: an evening­-length collaborative production.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION was conceived with Zachary James Watkins to interrogate the manner in which chamber music is created and consumed. Composed by five artists of color and performed by the two white cis men of The Living Earth Show, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION highlights the “lens of whiteness” through which the work of artists of color have to necessarily present their work. The project is built to activate the tradition of classical chamber music in order to craft a new, collaborative musical language.

Just as importantly, the collaborators view AFFIRMATIVE ACTION as a vehicle for bringing artists and audience together, reveling and relishing in “inclusion” as the production’s creative foundation. Though they have all engaged in decades of collaborative musicmaking, several of the composers will be writing their first “commissioned” piece of chamber music in this project. By presenting these composers’ work alongside the work of composers more familiar with the traditional chamber music ecosystem, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION provides a platform for artists of color to use chamber music (and the specific collaborative language of the medium) as a canvas to create vital artistic statements.

For the community at large, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is designed to welcome audience members who have traditionally felt excluded from classical music spaces, providing a multimedia production integrating improvisation, electronic music, ambient music, rock music, theater, and performance art to present an inclusive artistic experience.
