(re)Source Premieres Sept 25-28, 2019

BAAD! and The Chocolate Factory Theater are presenting the world premiere of (re)Source, a new performance by Maria Bauman-Morales / MBDance. Tickets are available at https://chocolatefactorytheater.org/maria-bauman-morales/

(re)Source is an evening-length live danced and spoken artwork performed inside an installation (crafted by Bauman-Morales in consultation with Zimbabwean-born interdisciplinary artist Nontsikelelo Mutiti) of taut strings and framed images which immersively surrounds and implicates the audience. Creator Maria Bauman-Morales dances through, with, in, and in spite of the visual, sonic and human landscapes which house (re)Source. The performance-ritual is unique and steeped in immediacy every time Bauman-Morales inhabits it; (re)Source is a scored improvisation wherein

She employs some of her families’ histories as a complex microcosm of race relations in the United States, digging in to the process of other-ing, being other-ed, and reclaiming radical connection.

Created and Performed by Maria Bauman-Morales. Dramaturg: Melanie George. Lighting Design: Tuçe Yasak. Sound Engineer: James Lo. Contributing Musician: Shea Rose. Scenic Consultation: Nontsikelelo Mutiti.

The development of (re)Source was supported by the Artist in Residence program at Brooklyn Arts Exchange and by the Urban Bush Women Choreographic Center Initiative.
