I co-wrote, directed, and produced a performance with 5 collaborators on the question: How can we make being a body a liberatory project?
Some of our inspirations…
“I materialize in my body the ghosts of my ancestors; my flesh inhabits other images. My body is forfeit to a past it has only partially enacted…the body is the flesh of memory.” -Katherine Young
“It is through the interplay of corporeality and abstraction that cultural knowledge gathers conviction and force.” -Deidre Sklar
Who are you? Can we find common ground? Talk? Love? Create something together? What is there around us and between us that allows this? -Luce Irigaray
“Power is a machine in which everyone is caught, those who exercise power just as much as those over whom it is exercised.” -Michel Foucault
