This project was made possible, in part, through The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Harkness Foundation for Dance, the Davis/Dauray Family Fund, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Pieces of it were developed at the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training, and in Mexico City on a travel grant from the Fund for Authentic Journalism.
