Tiffany Mills Company | Home Project (excerpts-in-process)
Thursday, May 20 and Saturday, May 22 at 7pm
Streamed live from the Ellen Stewart Theatre
TiffanyMills Company's Home Project weaves movement, text, and electronic music together to create an environment inspired by one word: home. Mills and her collaborators take a close look at their relationships with the places in which they live. They draw upon memories of their diverse childhood homes-some stableand constant, some mobile and unpredictable. They source material from their present homes impacted by the isolation of COVID-19 and inspired by the currentfight for equality. And they search for the true essence of home as they try toaccept who they are and imagine who they might collectively become. Conceived and choreographed by Tiffany Mills. The creative team includes Max Giteck Duykers (composer), Kay Cummings (dramaturge), and Chris Hudacs (lighting design). Home Project will be performed by Mills, Jordan Morley, Nikolas Owens,Emily Pope, and Mei Yamanaka. The evening-length work will premiere in 2022.
