Space Is the Place (Sun Ra)

Sat, Nov 19 2016 9:30 pm - 10:55 pm


Rarely screened today, Space is the Place is a cosmic journey in which philosopher/musician Sun Ra and his Arkestra, in their quest as space explorers, attempt to settle a new planet with African Americans, tempting them away from oppressive Earth with the music of the Arkestra. An Afro-Futuristic, psychedelic blend of intergalactic card games, time travel and spaceships, Sun Ra imagines outer space as a utopian zone free of racism where everyone is free to create their own future, or “alter-destiny.”
