Cyclical Navigations: In the In Between conceptualizes storytelling as a practice of embodied memory recollection — one that aids in the navigation of cyclical temporalities in the present, or what I have termed the ‘In Between.’ The In Between is the space between and within history and the contemporary. It is the liminal space that exists between an Afropessimist reality and an Afrofuturist practice. This project considers what is possible if Black history and thus Black stories are treated with care through the valuing of Black bodies and voices, both living and deceased. This interdisciplinary installation takes the audience on a nonlinear journey of time through memory, story, movement, and location.
