inherited inspirations

In response to the question: "Why are your women performers wearing all black?"
Choreographer, Ea Sola, responds: "Why do fathers keep sending their sons to war to fight other sons whose fathers haven sent them to fight the war?" (*quoted from memory)

I first became interested in the ways that people inherit war after watching a performance of Ea Sola's Drought and Rain vol. 2 in February of 2008 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the summer before I interned there.

Three years later, I have gratefully begun to explore that inheritance through the moving body.
