Salt and Spirit
Tuesday, January 17 at 7pm and Thursday, January 19 at 8pm
Salt and Spirit is a new work by Jasmine Hearn in collaboration with performers Dominica Greene, Kendra Portier, Marýa Wethers, and Charmaine Warren, and with creative support from Nora Alami and Myssi Robinson. The piece includes a dance of many myths and a song for stilling as it continues the nonlinear stories of N I L E and Trinity. Original sound by Hearn in collaboration with Lily Gelfand and Angie Pittman, with additional design by Athena Kokoronis of DPA, Salt and Spirit is a layering of remembered recipes, unkempt stories, and forgotten adornments.
