The Fellowship is a six-month paid residency for two individuals to collaboratively create a new performance-based project exploring environmental justice. Fellows will spend 10 hours/week developing this project with regular opportunities to share work, participate in other programs of Superhero Clubhouse, and engage with our community. The Fellowship will culminate in a presentation for an invited audience.
INTRODUCING OUR 2018-2019 COHORT
Shy and Karina are collaborating for the first time to explore the displacement of Puerto Ricans following Hurricane Maria. Together they will create a performance project utilizing their combined skills and strengths including spoken word poetry, oral storytelling, climate science, and community engagement. Shy and Karina have never met; they applied separately as individuals, and were paired together based on complementary interests and experience. They will present a work-in-progress performance in late March 2019.
We were so excited by this team that we created an Associate Fellows track! Performer/healer Aya Lane and photographer/filmmaker Imani Dennison will be given rehearsal space, a modest budget, and a work-in-progress performance opportunity to begin developing Drexciya, an epic multimedia performance piece stitched together by a video quilt of archived audio interviews, set in an alternative universe, and exploring water as a tool of oppression as well as a source of healing.
