After several years of development prior to and within their 2-year residency at BAX, Love|Fortè, A Collective has developed a project that examines the notion of memory residing in the bodies and practices of African descendant communities in North America. There are places where they, as African descendants, have become rooted through culture: communities that hold their traditions, and bodies that signify a shared experience.
Concurrent with installations on the top floor and theatre at BAX, Love|Fortè is weaving the work with film and media design to create an interactive performance experience for audiences.

Memory Withholdings was created during the BAX Artist in Residence (AIR) program which provides participating artists with one to two years of uninterrupted artistic, technical, and administrative support, as well as the rehearsal space and guidance necessary to take chances, refine their craft and expand their horizons.
From the Open Studio Series to the Works-In-Progress Series, the AIR program offers a rare opportunity to follow a work and engage the creators in a full arc of development.
