Studio Stories: CANDY BOX Edition with jess pretty

A Studio Stories special with one of CANDY BOX Dance Festival’s Featured Artists, jess pretty – Episode 151.

As part of the eighth annual CANDY BOX Dance Festival, jess pretty presents call and response:

call and response is a methodology for building connection and community; a celebration and appreciation for black life; an archival tool; and a lens for embodiment. This work is personal and archival; calling on me to turn towards my own story, lineage, and memory as the site of choreographic creation. In looking at myself, I aim to build a black queer archive to provide proof of life (instead of the constant images of black death we experience) for future generations.”
