Daniel Alexander Jones

Daniel Alexander Jones (He/His) is hailed by audiences, colleagues and critics as a groundbreaking and visionary artist. Over 25 years into his distinctive practice, Jones deftly weaves performance art, theatre, music, writing, and teaching into a wildflower body of work. His pieces include:, which premiered as a digital music, video and interactive site (CalArts Center for New Performance & New York Live Arts); BLACK LIGHT (Public Theater); DUAT (Soho Rep); and PHOENIX FABRIK (Pillsbury House Theatre). 53rd State Press recently published LOVE LIKE LIGHT, a collection of 7 works from across Jones’s career. Daniel was honored as the 2021 PEN America/Laura Pels Foundation awardee in Theatre, and was praised for “perfecting a dramaturgy all his own based in the traditions of Africana studies, performance studies, queer theory, and mysticism, challenging established traditions while creating space for audiences to ponder what theater is and who it is for.” Daniel lives in Los Angeles, where he is a Producing Artist for the Center for New Performance at CalArts, and is in residence with UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance.
