Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of exhilarating workshops, roundtable discussions, and performances at the upcoming Theatrical Jazz Conference, June 13-15, 2024, at the University of Minnesota. This three-day event celebrates and extends the legacy of seminal artists Laurie Carlos, Sekou Sundiata, Ntozake Shange, and numerous others who revolutionized the American theater by invoking elements of classic jazz––such as call-and-response, polyphony, syncopation, and improvisation––as theatrical language.

Our amazing lineup of presenters includes Sharon Bridgforth, Ananya Chatterjea, Douglas Ewart, Ebony Noelle Golden, Vicki Grise, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Zell Miller III, Sonja Parks, Sage Ni’Ja Whitson, Talvin Wilks, and many more. The conference culminates with a captivating Blue Note Address by award-winning artist/scholar Dr. Omi Osun Joni L. Jones, whose words promise to resonate and inspire long after the event.

Registration for the Theatrical Jazz Conference grants full access to all the incredible happenings throughout the three days, including a fabulous closing night dinner and party.
