what does it mean to be a woman? what does it mean to be a woman in America? how do we create an alternative geography that follows the existing map but develops from a logic other than the dominant logic of the nation state?
In the american / woman project, I am traveling around the country to collaborate with a woman dance artist in each state. My mission: to create a solo for each artist based on her interests and personal history.
In 2020, my plan was to work with seven artists based in the South. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, plane tickets were cancelled and several planned collaborations were put on hold until safe to resume in-person. As of Fall 2021, I am finally able to begin in-person collaborations with artists Jennifer Deckert (South Carolina) and Ann Glaviano (Louisiana).
