The Exponential Festival presents Departure Study of Mother/land Fabric

Filmed at The Brick Theater by ZANNI Productions

Was forgetting a calculated effort? How can you hold onto what you cannot recall? Heath’s solo performance seams pieces of movement, text, and video; exposing her deepest fantasies of an unknown mother. Suspended bojagi pieces create a fantasied womb space where fragments of partial truths and unverified facts circulate, slowly imprinting a possibility of embodied “folklore” memory.

Created and Performed by Annie Heath

In collaboration with

Shannon Brooks (Filmmaker)

Leonie Castelino (Visual Designer)

and Anna Wotring (Producer)

Departure Study of Mother/land Fabric is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council. 2020-2022 work of Annie Heath is made possible with the generous assistance of New York Live Arts; Asian American Arts Alliance; University of Massachusetts Amherst; and LEIMAY Foundation.
