2018 Residencies

Mina Zarfsaz (ACG'17) has been awarded the 2018 Performing Artist Residency with Asian Arts Initiative.

 

Tinkering Materiality: a tale of longing and belonging is a study of a domestic task -- e.g. food preparation -- turned ritual choreography. The piece explores the contact point between body, object, and environment through the lenses of social and political devastation and displacement. Using a lens that centers immigration, displacement, and acculturation, the work will aim to blur concepts of ability, disability, and adaptability by interjecting impediments to a series of tasks for able bodies to open a platform for a conversation around the emotional and mental detrimental forces that are imposed on immigrants and humans at large systemically.
