Performance Lab » Memoirs of a…Unicorn by Marjani Forte

In her new solo performance, Memoirs of a…Unicorn, contemporary choreographer and performer Marjani Forté-Saunders teams with media designer Meena Murugesan and sound designer Everett Saunders to ritualistically remember, interrogate, and revel in the properties of Black American magic and resilience. Spawning from stories of her Arkansas-born father’s life, this provocative work explores the tenets of his identity while digging into the wound of this creation story. Memoirs of a…Unicorn is a dynamic evening of storytelling, weaving historic and personal narratives into an embodied tale of fragmented loss, reconstruction, and warriorship. Recommended for mature audiences. This performance may feature nudity.

Marjani Forté performed for 5 years as part of the Urban Bush Women Dance Company, and is co-founder of LOVE|FORTÉ A COLLECTIVE.

Sponsored by Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, and Demara Titzer.
