Taisha Pagget: WE ARE THE PAPER WE ARE THE TREES

Taisha Paggett (UC Riverside): $10,000 for WE ARE THE PAPER WE ARE THE TREES. Major Grant.

“We Are The Paper We Are The Trees” is a cross-disciplined performance and installation work that asks, “What does it mean to be ‘one with nature? When does nature conjure up questions of privilege, property and power? What does nature have to do with Black bodies, and all marginalized people? How does the Black urban body break itself from the patterns, memories and traumas of the built environment?” A group of dancers perform actions developing potential answers to these questions.
