Solo

 

Two solos as one.

Bunker: “Bunker” arose out of questioning what “home” means to me during unsettling times. Ultimately, the body is the home. The body is your personal bunker. It is there for reinforcement, when the mind gets lost. This solo plays with rigor as a grounding force in an ever changing fast paced world.

Vault: Vault questions the same notion of home, but in context of the women who resided at the 92nd Y Residence and The Clara de Hirsch home for Working Girls from 1899-1950. I developed ideas for this piece through reading texts and materials from the 92nd Street Y archives. The Clara de Hirsch Home was a charitable residence for impoverished and homeless women, most often as a home for immigrants. I was inspired by the resilience and resolve of many of the women who both lived at and ran the organization. My practice grew from this research, embodying, visualizing and reimagining select stories of these women, finding inspiration and painting a picture of moments, feelings and wishes that they had.
