At the Bronx Museum of the Arts, in conjunction with the exhibition, Wardell Milan: Amerika. God Bless You If It’s Good to You, a performance series, presented in five acts collaboratively conceived by the artist and choreographed by Zachary Tye Richardson, will engage a set of sculptures, designed and fabricated by artist and designer Billy Ray Morgan for the exhibition.
The July 24, 2021 performance features 5 indices On A Tortured Body: The Trans Body. Within each performance Richardson creates movements expressing persistence and resilience, while Morgan’s sculptures are integral to the choreographed movements and expand upon ideas of mourning, identity, and love. Together, Richardson, Morgan and the dancers adapt each performance from themes within Milan’s practice, the complexities of their individual experiences, and through shared ideas of healing from traumatic, lived experiences.
Performers: Zachary Tye Richardson, Mae Eskenazi, B. Hawk Snipes
