Our Artistic Director Maria Bauman, has been a 2017-2018 Artist in Residence with Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and is thrilled to share her progress on MBDance’s latest interdisciplinary work, (re)Source, an investigation-in-process. In addition to solo choreographed and improvised dancing, the work includes a visual art landscape Bauman navigates. She dances with, in, through, and in spite of it. It’s an abstracted version of a family tree she has been conversing with family members and conducting research to construct. Of the work she says, “My experience is that we’re all navigating; I certainly am. Whether I am bringing my Blackness across the terrain of conversations on shared and not-shared experiences in our dance field with white colleagues, whether I am using my grandmother’s prayers and my father’s wit as a map to direct my course through Trump’s vision of the U.S., or whether I am sailing over depression and stagnancy with care, I am navigating. And I know I am not the only one moving carefully and without ease over sometimes unexpected terrain.”
