A week long residency collaboration between NY based Skeleton Architecture, Harge Dance Stories, Black dance artists in Detroit, and University of Michigan students that intentionally creates space for black women and gender non-conforming dancers to be in communion with one another.
A public showing will take place March 4, 2018 at Light Box.
This residency is supported by Experiments in Coalition through Daring Dances.
Jennifer Harge will be a performer in residence to develop FLY | DROWN, an immersive exhibition that invests in the creation of Black space and Black queer liberation practices through mundanity, intimacy, and the home. During the residency Harge plans to develop and experiment with movement scores that prioritize domestic mundanity, Black interiority, and choreographing pleasure.
A performance of Harge’s research will be held on March 22 at MCA.
