Fana Fraser with Martell Ruffin
no talking while eating fish a bone will stick in your throat (work in process)
a sermon, a story
a study, a speech
a slippery shape shifting song of songs
of shamed desire,
fueled by blood and rage and a mortared pound of salted flesh.
a slow re-membering.
NIC Kay presents work in progress
GET WELL SOON! You Black + Bluised
This work is a continuation of their exercises in getting well soon, a project / meditation based on the loose and often used phrase indicating a hope of recovery. These exercises have been articulated as movement, installation, games, endurance, ritual, poetry, and collective action.
The site specific work, GET WELL SOON! You Black + Bluised, is a performance of abstract bids in movement and tableau.
The Movement Research Van Lier Emerging Artists of Color Fellowship is a year-long program for two NYC movement-based artists of color between 22 and 30 years of age. The fellowship provides creative research support, rehearsal space, mentorship, performance and related opportunities. Designed to support the artists’ individualized creative process, the fellowship uses the resources available to be responsive to each artist’s needs. In addition to providing resources and experiences during the year of their fellowship, the program facilitates support for laying groundwork for the artists’ future. Artists are selected through an open application and panel process; past Fellows include Jasmine Hearn (2016) and Shatelle Courvoisier Jackson (2016).
The Movement Research Van Lier Emerging Artists of Color Fellowship is supported by New York Community Trust through the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund.
