Guggenheim Works & Process Premiere
In January 2021, at a time of isolation, Works & Process at the Guggenheim Bubble Residency housed at Bethany Arts Community provided a safe harbor for the @ladiesofhiphop to safely gather facilitating intergenerational transference that culminated in filmed performances at The Jerome Robbins Dance Division at The New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. Made possible through a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Far too often undervalued & rarely celebrated, Black women have been holding this country down since its formation & continue to lead across industries often with less visibility, with little to no accolades. Black women have been at the center (& behind the scenes) of every movement, artistic & social. With this project celebrate you!
Launched in 2018, this is an ongoing project connecting Black women in street dance, across generations with the ultimate goal to create dance performance works, a photo book, & a film documenting the creative process, beauty, strength, and lived experiences of us.
