About

Heroes Take Their Stands is an evening-length, multimedia work in five parts, and a cycle of stories that spans time, space, and human experience. The new pieces will be written for the Silkroad Ensemble by different composers, including Kennedy Center Artistic Director for Jazz Jason Moran (in a yet untitled piece inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s address to Holt Street Baptist Church in 1955), Pauchi Sasaki (Elektra), Colin Jacobsen (Arjuna at Kuru: Discourse with Lord Krishna), Kayhan Kahlor (Slavosh in Touran: Farewell to His Wife & Horse), and Zhao Lin (Doe E at Chuzhov). The Kennedy Center is a co-commissioner of Silkroad’s Heroes Take Their Stands.

This event is part of The Human Journey,collaboration between the Kennedy Center, National Geographic Society, and the National Gallery of Art. The Human Journey invites audiences to investigate the powerful experiences of migration, exploration, identity, and resilience through the lenses of the performing arts, science, and visual art.
