MeMoSa: Angela's Pulse: A'we deh ya

-

RSVP here!

Get a peek into the research and development of A'we deh ya ("All of us are here"), a new work by Paloma McGregor, artistic director of Movement Lab Company-in-Residence Angela's Pulse. A'we is a multi-disciplinary call-and-response between colony and mainland, being created in alignment with local efforts to thwart disaster capitalism in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, in the wake of the destruction caused during the 2017 hurricane season.

In mid-November, Paloma will gather Virgin Islanders and Stateside collaborators for a week of virtual creative process as part of her 3-year residency at The Movement Lab at Barnard, supported by the Soros Arts Fellowship, MAP Fund, Movement Research and The Public.

This event will function as a process share at the end of that week. Please RSVP here to join.
