Join us for the world premiere of the full length work, while I was homegrowing. This movement quartet uses dance to explore a process of memory excavation during conversations with Lucia's father about his mother, who she never met, and seeks to unpack how her memory has become embodied in fabric and bones. The artists are enthralled with the process of recreating her in memories that we do not tangibly possess. The memory work unravels into a deep pool of ancestors, both living and past, that our bodies carries around; We ache to know these ancestors inside us, and honor them.
