> DESCRIPTION

The two-day stage performance will feature Hunter’s solo work, da Travla a progressive, rhythmically intent, physical and aural journey, inspired by the “Great Migration” of African Americans from the rural south to the urban north during the early to mid 1900’s. Accompanied by the eclectic, acapella vocals of performer/vocalist Preach R Sun (HBO “Def Poetry”, “One-Man”), they explore the implication of folk tradition in contemporary performance.

The second act will feature SITE (for which the project takes its name) a group work presented during the opening night of NY SummerStage 2012. SITE is a work of action and process, and an exploration of initiation as a practice of self-discovery and kinship, set to an entrancing score of collected sounds from field recordings, Orisha music, contemporary blues and hip hop, and original text from guest performer, photographer/visual artist MyronChristian Macauley’s book, Modern Man in Search of Soul, arranged by musician Arthur Solari. Whitney Hunter[MEDIUM] collective performers: Otis Donovan Herring, Whitney Hunter, Youthen Joseph, Ricarrdo Valentine, Andre M. Zachery.
