Skeleton Architecture: An Evening of Performance

On this special evening, Skeleton Architecture will share a performance that emphasizes the collaborative process and highlights the power of Black womyn within community. This sharing imagines and activates a site of InterSections – a crossroads, a place of high-stakes, risks and magic — through improvisation, dance, song, text, and spirit. Open to all.

The Skeleton Architecture collective, the 2017 Bessie recipients for “Outstanding Performance,” originated through Eva Yaa Asantewaa’s curated evening during Danspace Project’s Platform 2016: Lost & Found. The collective is a vessel of Black womyn and gender non-conforming artists rooted in the rigor and power of the collective in practice. They commit to engaging embodied research to support the African Diasporic experiences. Join Skeleton Architecture for the culmination of their year-long Danspace Project Research Residency. There will be three offerings that include improvisation, movement, fellowship, music, and discussion.

Skeleton Architecture members are: Maria Bauman, Davalois Fearon, Marjani Forté-Saunders, Melanie Greene, Kayla Hamilton, Jasmine Hearn, Marguerite Hemmings, Nia Love, Paloma McGregor, Sydnie L. Mosley, Grace Osborne, Leslie Parker, Angie Pittman, Samantha Speis, Charmaine Warren, Edisa Weeks, Marýa Wethers, and Tara Aisha Willis.
