BBB
(2018)

BBB is shaping up to be many things: a bloody bloody bay, a brave bitter birth, a beautiful bellowing beast. I am working in collaboration with musician and dramaturge Lydia Moore, blending underbelly tempos of the Caribbean with rhythm & blues, and conjuring a fantastic world of desire with remnants of a brutal colonial history. With stillness and mania, BBB is morphing into a new word for revenge. BBB might be my new formula for power.

BBB was created in part in residence at the College of Staten Island through a 2017-18 CUNY Dance Initiative Artist Residency and with commissioning support from Gibney, with funds provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation.
