Grant or Program
National Dance Project Production Grant
Grant Amount

Migratuse Ataraxia is a multi-media collaboration and performance that confronts the physical violence and psychic weight of the “latent melancholia,” wrought by the legacies of antebellum life and symbols of racial violence in the present. It centers black experience and embodiment through an emphasis on corporeality, gesture, space, and commensality. Performed in antebellum spaces in post-industrial southern cities replete with antebellum structures that invoke the inextricable legacies of slavery and white -supremacy.
