(re)Source- BLAKTINX 2019
(re)Source is an evening-length live danced and spoken artwork performed inside an audience-co-created installation that Bauman-Morales designed in consultation with acclaimed Zimbabwean artist Nontsikelelo Mutiti. Creator Maria Bauman-Morales dances through, with, in, and in spite of the visual, sonic and human landscapes which house (re)Source. The performance-ritual is unique and steeped in immediacy every time Bauman-Morales inhabits it; (re)Source is a scored improvisation wherein Bauman-Morales dances, sings, and speaks through the assets in her family (both the Blackfolks and whites), what it takes to make it in Trump's U.S., and what her research into maroonage and her own ancestors have to do with all of that. She employs some of her families' histories as a complex microcosm of race relations in the United States, digging in to the process of other-ing, being other-ed, and reclaiming radical connection.
