What is it to be born Black in America, to grow knowing the love of a home and to confront the threat of existing outside of it? This immersive work is the investigation of this question through the musical and visual renderings of excerpts from Mahogany L. Browne’s newest anthology of poetry, Chrome Valley. With original compositions by Sean Mason and recitation/choreography by Marija Abney, this piece translates word into movement and sound. We stitch a quilt that journeys through this country’s legacy of collective/collected traumas and explore what has been heirloomed to Black bodies in spite of it all.
