Residency in Madrid Spain with video artist Aissa Santiso on our latest project, Arco Iris.
We are creating an interdisciplinary performance piece centering on the results of Marissa’s DNA testing. Through the test it was revealed that in the past 300 years Marissa has at least 1 ancestor who was 100%; Iberian, British, Italian, Sardinian, French/German, Scandinavian, West African, Yakut, Central and South African, East African, Ashkenazi Jewish, North African, and Native American. A song, story, and dance will be researched from each cultural/racial identity listed and used to create the site specific performance. The performances will take place in historically relevant sites in which the architecture of the location will receive the visual projections.
