Jonathan Girling

Living Lakes

A dance-piece in collaboration with Joel Valentin-Martinez and Anita Gonzalez.  Initial work done by Anita and Joel in 2015.  Further work completed in April/May 2016 with Jonathan in Chicago.  Application process now underway for further collaboration and writing leading up to May 2017 in the USA and later in the UK.  Fantastic piece so far exploring the migration from the South to the Mid-West, North & East of America of African-Americans and Mexican Americans from 1910-1939.  Looking at integration, migration and cultural sensitivities in the 20th century that still resonate today.
