FirstWorks, a Rhode Island non-profit dedicated to building community through world-class arts, will present renowned composer, violinist and activist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and “The Telling” at 8 p.m. on January 22, 2022 at WaterFire Arts Center. “The Telling” is a new collection of his original compositions with instrumental solos, dance and chamber music — each exploring the question: how can we, the living, honor the lost? A Town Hall dialogue will follow the live concert.
“The Telling” will premiere at the WaterFire Arts Center on January 22, 2022 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35-$55 with a pay-what-you-can option, to offer equitable access. Tickets are available firstworks.org or by calling 401-421-4278.
A month-long video exhibition titled “The Seeing,” produced through a creative partnership between FirstWorks and WaterFire Providence, will accompany the premiere performance of “The Telling,” on view at the WaterFire Arts Center from January 12 through February 6, 2022. The exhibition will feature seven film works scored by Daniel Bernard Roumain and is open to the public.
All attendees must show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 with photo ID, or a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance. Masks are required for all.
