Finding Space Between

By Emily Ames and Amber Lucia Chabus

Influenced by the writings of feminist theorists like bell hooks, Simone de Beauvoir and Susan Bordo, Finding Space Between seeks to explore the construction of women and the spaces we inhabit.

i'm just trying to stay here

By Les Gray

There are three elements here: weights, waits and water. What stage are you in?

i'm just trying to stay here explores how to continuously survive trauma - collective and personal - as a black person in over-policed and over-mediated American society. Using dance, spoken word, video art and immersive drama, this piece works through every painful means of survival, and the connections (and disconnections) we need to stay here.
