"Unknown Marrow" explores the influence of ancestry, landscape, and language that is within a dancer's blood memory. She investigates the complicated relationship between her ancestors in Nova Scotia as well as examines the fragility and resilience of these peoples. Within the work, she questions the various ways we cope with difficult histories and considers the way we share information about these complex lineages.
This multi-year project will culminate in the production of both scholarly publications in academic journals and a full length solo work.
