In creation, premiers September 2023.
My SONG explores altered continuation and relational identity formations of the marginalized. Through call and response as a quality of being different together, the performance resists the shared modernity of colonialism that maintains dominance of one over the other.
The performance moves past normative ways of sensing, and revives the absent references that borne identities, circling from the unknown into a spirit known only in form of a song sung into existence.
