HOME is a series of dances collectively reflecting the history and issues Flint, Michigan has undertaken. It will be a collaboration of dance, music and video documentation of Flint such as the people, the water and the homes. I want to analyze what happens to people’s idea of home when their home has dealt with severe issues such as loss of jobs, abandonment of homes, school closings, crimes and an infamous water crisis. This project will be a performance which displays the personal connections and explanation of the endeavors Flint has faced while using the culture of hip hop as a format. I will have the help of Flint collaborators to perform, create music and design custom costumes for the production. Home will inform two different kinds of audiences, Flint residents and outside residents, Flint will be rebuilt with hope even after dealing with the storm.
