My new project Gestural Lineage
Here I’ll be writing updates as I spend a year in the Philippines, researching for my new dance-anthropology project Gestural Lineage.
What I hope to learn:
-I hope to observe daily gestures in Filipino culture
-I hope to experience how the environment contributes to the culture
-i hope to learn and observe indigenous protocols
-I hope to understand Indigenous Filipino relationship to the land, water, and sky
-I hope to understand relationships within the community
-Blog posts to keep those interested in this work informed on the journey
-Documentation in writing
-Live performance piece and/or dance film with Filipino dance artists
-Workshops/discussion on the topics of ancestry, motherland and the first peoples of the land on which we currently reside
Check back here for updates throughout my time!
