Studio Series: Marjani Forté-Saunders’ What else (working title)
For her Studio Series showing, Forté-Saunders will present What else (working title), her newest solo, evening-length work. Currently in the early stages of development and creative process, the work takes inspiration from Forté-Saunders’ father, an animated being of great contradiction, whim and majesty. What else meditates on bottomless and intangible love, sprouting from that of father and daughter into the many facets of relationship and union. Forté-Saunders’ exploration is driven by the politics of her father’s being and likeness, toiling with its weight, and lamenting it’s tragic timeliness.
Support for the Studio Series is provided, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
