Marjani Forté-Saunders

Live Artery – MEMOIRS OF A …. UNICORN (Work-in-progress)

New York Live Arts Studios
Jan 7, 1pm

Presenters RSVP here.
Commissioned by Live Arts as part of the Live Feed creative residency program.

In her new solo, Memoirs of a… Unicorn, contemporary choreographer and performer Marjani Forté-Saunders, teams with Media Designer Meena Murugesan and sound designer Everett Saunders, to ritualistically re – member, interrogate, and relish in the properties of Black American magic and resilience. Spurring from stories of her Arkansas born Father’s life, this provocative work explores the tenets of his identity, while digging in the wound of its creation story. Memoirs of a… Unicorn is a dynamic evening of storytelling, that weaves historic and personal narratives into an embodied tale of fragmented loss, reconstruction, and Warriorship.
