The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) presents Mélange, a performance by New Orleans-born artist Rashaad Newsome. In conjunction with a display of selected videos and works on paper, Newsome’s performance combines elements of vogueing with an improvised soundtrack by a hip-hop emcee, an operatic vocalist, and local musicians.

Performances are on January 20, 2017, at 7:30 and 9:30 pm. General admission is $35, and discounted tickets are available for CAC members. For more information, visit the CAC’s website.
