Welcome to The Breakfast Dish! Dance, music, visual art, theatre and get-to-know-you conversations with the artists behind the work. Join Griffin Cork and his mom, Karen Johnson-Diamond every Monday morning as they meet the creators of today's digital offerings. This podcast is dairy and gluten free!
This week, Karen and Griffin are joined by actor, producer and filmmaker Howard J. Davis (aka HAUI) to chat about his latest project: Mixed UP↑ - "Mixed UP↑ feels like the future. A mixed multimedia opus about mixed identities, whether they be racial, generational, national, or gendered. An emotional history lesson that’s also a window on human potential. Dance, animation, archival footage, painting, video testimonials, Zadie Smith quotes, text conversations, spoken word poetry, performance art of the filmmaker covered in a colour-changing membrane as if encrusted in a chameleonic crème brûlée – these are just a few of the methods used to detail and deconstruct cycles of prejudice.
