Final performance rehearsal
I am so thrilled to be working with such amazing and talented group of people. Thank you Amina, Jorge, Clover, and Cristal for all the energies and nuances they are bringing to this work. These are images from our rehearsal as all the pieces are falling into place. As I told them last night: Language has weight, it has presence, every part of our body interacts with words in different ways, words have a charge, this is why i love text. Spoken word performance activates the body through language that must be heard, felt and experienced. The embodiment and witnessing of this language activates space and leaves a visceral resonance even after the performance is completed. For me, the public function of art is to engage in critical conversations that speak to the narrative of now. Spoken word is always about the moment…the now.
