How do borders affect the spaces we encompass in our everyday lives? How can the technologies of dance, ﬁlm, and multi-media performance translate and expand the conversations we have about our borders? What are the repercussions on our bodies and communal health?
Adam McKinney of DNAWORKS in New York will bring 8 artists to Centrum's Artistic Residency Program, where they will begin work on a multi-media collaborative piece entitled “The Borders Project”. This collaborative residency will include both Daniel Banks and Adam, Co-Directors of DNAWORKS, along with Chris Crader, Trinity Hamilton, Samar Haddad King, Diane Roberts, Ariel Vegosen, and Scott Macklin.
" DNAWORKS is dedicated to furthuring artistic expression and dialogue, focusing on issues of indentity, culture, class, and heritage. We catalyze performance and action through the arts in the intersecting communitites in which we live and work. In our work, art = ritual = healing = community. We look forward to taking advantage of Fort Worden’s natural elements, as well as the cistern, bunkers, and beach from June 14-20, 2009."
