[siccer] is an animation and dance project prompted by how black bodies are photographed, (mis)quoted, and rendered strange in cinematic media. Using stop-motion to animate five dancers, [siccer] reinterprets “strangeness” as a desirable, collective contagion that confounds simplistic "capture". By improvising and expanding upon the film’s scenarios, [siccer] explores ways for dancers to sustain arguments with their virtual selves.

Estimated Artist Fee: $6,040/performance; $26,370/performance week; $3,000 screening only (sliding scale depending on institution budget).
