Amma is a victim of domestic abuse and faces a life or death decision: let go of life or fight for survival. She represents those who are, were, or on the way to experience domestic violence. Amma’s Chasm is a call to the community compelling them to speak out, lift each other up, and mend wounds, bringing light to the darkness of domestic violence. Collaborating with community activists and artists, southern Maryland-based dance artist Monique Newton Walker explores perspectives, outcomes, and healing around domestic violence in her mixed-media dance residency.
