EQUATORS CLIP VIDEO BY: David Borawski - Footage taken at the Housatonic Community College Theater Arts March 2017

EQUATORS is an exploration of environmental justice as a major form of racial injustice targeting how climate structures like The Arctic Circle, The Tropic of Cancer, The Tropic of Capricorn, The Equator and The Antarctic circle influence expectations for quality of life, order and territory. EQUATORS was made in collaboration with Installation Artist David Borawski and Lighting designer Jon-Paul LaRocco. The Installation targets how racial divides are manifested in homes, neighborhoods, and geography due to impacts of zoning, segregation and gentrification. The solo developed and performed by choreographer Arien Wilkerson is a conversation with territory. The performance explores weather and environment with movement, sculpture, sound and imagery. The movement imagery is reflecting how our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well being is affected by our environment, the deaths that take place in those environments or climates and how we react to human made boundaries due to climate change and environmental unawareness. If a hurricane knew it was killing thousands of people, if wildfires knew it was destroying homes, If earthquakes knew when they were going plummet people into the ground would they still do it? Could they control it? Audience members who attend this work will be asked to interrogate their expectations of Climate, human-made boundaries, police violence, bodies, anthropomorphism, and environmental waste.

EQUATORS TOUR was funded in part by New England Foundation for the Arts’ New England Dance Fund, with generous support from the Aliad Fund at the Boston Foundation.
