(process memoir 4): The word, the spirit, and Little Rock. is one part of eight of a six year process that will conclude with the construction of two "docs-epics" framing, deconstructing and reimagine the contemporary (the years 2000-2010, and the decade that follows suite). This process performance was shared in Danspace Project Inc's Winter 2019 season in a split bill alongside Angie Pittman.
This material for PM4 was created, in part, while in residence at the Petronio Residency Center, in collaboration with Danspace Project’s Commissioning Program, and is supported by the New York State DanceForce, a partnership program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Process memoir 4: The word, the spirit, and Little Rock. was also created with support from the Abrons Arts Center through the Abrons AIRspace Grant Residency Program, as a Choreoquest AIR 2018 at RestorationARTS, and as a Summer 2018 Artist in Residence at Bates Dance Festival. Space, and other support was provided while in residence at the American Dance Festival, Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Dance and Choreography, New York University’s Department of Dance, and DANCENOW Silo.
The process performance was performed as a part of A New Evening of Work for Danspace Project Inc's Winter 2019 Season in a shared evening with Angie Pittman.
