The Deal

Raisin’ Cane: A Harlem Renaissance Odyssey

  • The Harlem Renaissance: the rich period of artistic expression in the African-American community that flourished in between WWI and the dawn of the Great Depression
  • How Raisin’ Cane honors it: through music, movement, imagery, and poetry—all wrapped into a vividly staged multimedia production
  • The inspiration: the 1923 novel Cane by Jean Toomer, as well as the words and art of legends such as Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and W.E.B. Du Bois
  • Your mistress of ceremonies: four-time Image Award–winning singer, dancer, and Broadway star Jasmine Guy (A Different World, Dead Like Me), who, according to the Arizona Star, is “the perfect vessel for all that was considered beautiful during the Harlem Renaissance”
  • How she guides the proceedings: via dramatic readings, song, and dance (Ms. Guy was also a part of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company), all while shrouded in projections of vintage Harlem street scenes and art from the era
  • Joining her: the Avery Sharpe Trio, a bass-percussion-violin ensemble that accentuates the show with classics such as Eubie Blake’s “I’m Just Wild About Harry” and backs Guy on a powerful rendition of the traditional spiritual, “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child”

Zeiterion Theatre

Past rows of seats covered in crimson, past a red carpet that brings out the auditorium's regality, past a centerpiece chandelier that dangles from the ceiling with the quiet grace of a toddler climbing out of her crib, is a stage. Upon this stage, the Zeiterion Theatre explores the performing arts, hosting national and international performers who enlighten the community to other cultures and inspire the younger population to actively participate in the arts. Every year, Zeiterion, lovingly known as "The Z," also provides 5,000 free tickets to children and families with low incomes, working to make arts more accessible to all.
