B-Word Project

Thank You

The B-Word Project’s final event was November 17, 2012. For the previous 18 months, the B-Word Project brought musicians, performance artists, journalists, choreographers, authors, critics, film-makers, and attorneys to California State University Long Beach to engage students and our general community in thinking about censorship. While the B-Word Project is over, we invite you to enjoy the B-Word Project website and the videos, blogs, and readings available here.

The Carpenter Center was proud to coordinate the B-Word Project, creating the paths across our campus for interdisciplinary learning. We are grateful to the Association of Performing Arts Presenters and the Doris Duke Charitable Trust for sponsoring the B-Word Project. Thank you to all who took part in B-Word Project activities and performances.

We will be offering similar programs in the future, to continue to make the arts accessible and intriguing for our campus and our community.

Internationally renowned choreographer Bill T. Jones joins the Carpenter Center and CSULB Department of Dance for the Southern California premiere of his landmark piece, Reading Mercy and the Artificial Nigger—a work inspired by a Flannery O’Connor short story—that transcends boundaries as it mixes dance, literature and race.

The finest dancers from the CSULB Department of Dance have been selected to perform the work, in an evening that kicks off three premiere works by noted CSULB faculty choreographers—Gerald Casel, Sophie Monat, and Andrew Vaca.
