Event Type
Event Description
Co-MISSION Works-in-Progress performances offer split bill showings by artists awarded Summer Intensives, Residencies and Fellowships by Links Hall's Programing committee. Through the Co-MISSION program, Links Hall offers Intensives, Residencies, and Fellowships that support 14-16 artistic projects annually. These programs incorporate a flexible range of resources designed to meet the needs of artistic experimentation at different points in an artist's career and different points in a project's development.
November 20th Co-MISSION artists are: Willyum LaBeija and haydee "hr" souffrant
The inspiration...
Willyum LaBeija's work-in-progress, “I Don’t Consent,” explores the topic of life experiences living with PTSD, Anxiety, and Bi-Polar/Schizophrenia mental disabilities. Using spoken word, Ballroom culture, and personal life experiences, Willyum takes you through a journey of emotional distress in which these disabilities are created.
haydee "hr" souffrant will share [when little black girls fall through the cracks]. This work-in-progress, movement-inspired storytelling piece, is inspired by a little girl coping with the aftermath of her islands' devastating earthquake.
