to the kids who live and demand
we act
in the doing
here and now
awestruck and unafraid"

"This work was inspired by the release of recent statistics showing the disproportionate amount of black and brown bodies being affected by the Covid-19 crisis. In this work I set out to create an imaginatively potent fever dream that aims to capture the fear of sickness, and the anxiety of quarantine as it relates to the historical trauma of black bodies being relegated to live in and within confined spaces. Being asked to self quarantine while politically quarantined presents a crisis within a crisis, leaving these communities the most exposed and vulnerable to the effects of the pandemic."

The Guggenheim Museum commissioned the creation of a new work from dancer and choreographer Jamar Roberts, as a part of their Works & Process series.


"What behaviors and choices make the difference between life and death in a disaster? What are the skills that will matter most in a crisis, and how do we learn them? Autumn interviews the brilliant founders of Queer Nature, who lead workshops and immersions teaching survival skills and natural crafts. In the first of two conversations, Queer Nature drops wisdom on how the mind and body respond to crisis, how non-human systems can be our allies, and what trauma has to do with our survival."
