g1(host): lostatsea grapples with what it means to live within conditions shaped by the “afterlife” of slavery. As a serial, multi-media performance and mobile site of study, I pursue questions regarding my body’s status as it pivots on this fundamental query: what remains of the Middle Passage as force, gesture, and affect?

Exploring themes of loss, alchemy, geological debris, and generational accretions, I trace a dense, energetic nothingness. Here, “wake work,” as scholar Christina Sharpe asserts, operates as a mode of suspension, a sensory field of historical being, an oceanic black thing that we’re all drenched by and in.

Please join us for a post-show Toast on November 7, and post-performance discussion moderated by Melanie Person on November 8.
