ABOUT THE GRANT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Picture Bayview Hunters Point is an interdisciplinary site-specific performance that focuses on the dreams and aspirations of local residents as the neighborhood undergoes a period of economic and demographic change. Conceived and directed by Joanna Haigood of Zaccho Dance Theatre in collaboration with video artist Mary Ellen Strom, composer Walter Kitundu and digital media organization BAYCAT, this work is the culmination of a multi-city project realized over the past eighteen years. The artists will document local histories and the community’s vision through a series of special events, interviews and historical archives and incorporate these elements into the final performance project at the Bayview Opera House, October 11-21, 2018.
