Gabrielle Civil, Associate Professor of Performance at Antioch College, came to WYSO today to talk about the second part of the Call and Response event, or dynamic of black women and performance. In July seven black women artists, each with a different relationship to the words black, women, and performance, came to Antioch to develop a call to the community; a prompt to make art in a different way. The call that they came up with is to conduct experiments in joy. This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday there will be a myriad of events and performances at Antioch showing the performers, and the communities responses. Tune in to hear Gabrielle talk more about some responses that will be presented this weekend as well as the thought process behind this event.

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
