In her new solo, Memoirs of a…Unicorn, contemporary choreographer and performer Marjani Forté-Saunders teams with media designer Meena Murugesan and sound designer Everett Saunders to ritualistically re-member, interrogate and relish in the properties of Black American magic and resilience. Spurring from stories of her Arkansas-born father’s life, this provocative work explores the tenets of his identity while digging in the wound of its creation story. Memoirs of a…Unicorn is a dynamic evening of storytelling that weaves historic and personal narratives into an embodied tale of fragmented loss, unabiding love and adornment and Warriorship.
