About the Work:

home. is Nia & Ness's second evening-length dance-poetry piece that deeply explores our daily realities as an out Black, lesbian couple. With this work, we posit that our bodies are our homes, collecting stories like dust and decor as we move through the world. This work also recognizes that as out Black lesbians, our bodies themselves put our literal, shared home on display every time we walk out of its doors. From sharing our everyday experiences with “micro” aggressions to making visible the impacts of violence, we go there with this work. We hope you'll join us.

Misaki Hayama presents Warabe Uta for the January 2021 performances of Take Root. "Warabe Uta" are traditional Japanese songs, similar to nursery rhymes often sung as part of children's games. The dance pieces created and presented here explore this hidden history and show how the past has influenced new generations to find their future paths.
