while I was homegrowing uses movement to explore a process of memory excavation.

An outdoor dance performance in a beautiful Vermont setting.

while I was homegrowing uses movement to explore a process of memory excavation as I have conversations with my father about his mother, who I never met, and seeks to unpack how her memory has become embodied in fabric and bones. I am enthralled with the process of recreating her in memories that I do not tangibly possess. The memory work unravels into a deep pool of ancestors, both living and past, that my body carries around; I ache to know these ancestors inside me, and honor them. while I was homegrowing is not narrative in a traditional sense; I am interested in watching the overlay of movement, history, and textile unfold into a living dance piece.

Choreographed, produced, and performed by Lucia Gagliardone.

This piece is dedicated to my father, Steve.

Made with collaborators Uilani Marx, Rush Johnston, and Alexandria Francois, and dramaturgy support from Lou Sydel and Lydia Roe. Lou Sydel created the graphic design for this piece. MOtiVE Brooklyn contributed to the creation of this piece through their space grant. Ty Gagliardone managed tech. Julia Sloane also made artistic contributions to this piece.
