Thurs Feb 27
An interdisciplinary piece that explores the concept of dichotomy in terms of “natural” vs. “unnatural” and our aim to seek balance and find the “in-between.” The collaborators include Sierra Tasi Baker (director); Dae Nneka and Kor Kase of AfroVan Connect (music); Her Tribal Roots’ Alyssa Amarshi, Orin T. McRey, and Marisa Gold (movement); Rosie Thornbush (clowning); and Anja Novkovic (visual art).
Fri Feb 28
Selected Memories is a DJ set where the audience participates as the selector, choosing records from Todd Simmons’ (aka Rod Skimmins) collection. Todd responds by sharing the entertaining and deeply personal memories and stories that reside within each piece of vinyl.
Sat Feb 29
The dance-art collective Immigrant Lessons presents Origins, a dance-theatre-visual media-immersive exploration into a past that leaves echoes in the present. Seven artists dive into their unique stories, and journey through intersections of identity, to uncover the similarities.
How do we sift away the debris of generations ago? How do we stand in the truths of how it has affected us in the present? How do we hold space for one another as we peel back the layers of traumas passed down? How do we coexist?
