2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Arielle is creating a performance piece, Fallawayinto, a circular and fragmented play about Donna Booker, a black trans woman activist (1962-2006) and her relentless quest to create a sanctuary of her body. Arielle aims to honor Donna’s life, while building a performance-making process that demonstrates Donna’s leadership as technology and mindfulness about the transitions of our bodies into the future. The play will use puppetry, live-devised sound, iterative poetry, and interactive performance to celebrate the living/present leadership of black trans women.
