Desire: A Sankofa Dream is a site-responsive, immersive performance-ritual built around Black Queer survival techniques such as place-claiming and world-building. It presupposes a world wherein our ancestors are unicorns who have come back to remind humans of our possibilities and agency. Unique every time it is offered, choreographer and writer Maria Bauman reimagines Desire for each new site it inhabits, in the tradition of the Radical Faeirie network and of Black & Brown queer youth claiming and co-creating Christopher Street Pier in NYC. This exciting piece of embodied speculative fiction includes a Cat’s Cradle-like yarn installation full of fractals and portals. With Desire: A Sankofa Dream, Bauman and her company MBDance conjure new sites and choreography for dancing and speaking with, through and in spite of the possibilities and obstacles of the installation—a site of world-building and choice-making.
