HUNger

 

Hunger, 2017
Multi-MEdia PerFormance, Installation

Working at the junction of performance and film, HUNGER is an evening length video-poem performed by two black women in an immersive, sculptural installation. Centering the black feminine subject as the universal voice and body, HUNGER unfolds and reconciles the tension between the yearning for connection and belonging, and the lingering shadow of alienation and displacement. The performance weaves together video projection, spoken and sung text, choreographed movement, and dense soundscapes to dissolve the boundaries between past and present, land and body, inner and outer, self and the world; seeing in these border-crossings the promise of homecoming and liberation.
