ABOUT THE PROJECT
Memoirs of a…Unicorn is a solo evening length dance work that uses sound, media, set and performance to ritualistically re-member, interrogate, and relish in the properties of Black American magic and resilience. Spurred by stories of Marjani Forté-Saunders’ Arkansas born Father’s life, Forté-Saunders explore the tenets of his identity while riffing in the wound of its creation story. Memoirs of a…Unicorn weaves historic and personal narratives into an embodied tale of fragmented histories, unabated love, and Warriorship.
