October 18th, 19th, and 20th, 2019

"Hyphenated States" explores and responds to experiences in and out of foster care and the impacts of these experiences on spacetimebodyminds. The ensemble uses metaphors of magic, life's lessons, collage art, and painting to create, animate, and translate research into action.

This performance premiered as part of the Crumble Collection along side four phase I and phase II performances:

Friend me, Follow me, Say hello

Structural War Zone

Thanks for tuning in and please stop staring!
