WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Love|Fortè's work is rooted in movement/culture of the African Diaspora through bodies that intentionally and habitually hold a distinct language specific to their culture as African American women. This movement is rooted in named forms such as Be-Bop and Hip Hop as well as unnamed, coded states of being which are specific to African American culture. Memory Witholdings grew out of a year-long study that seeks to identify hidden traces of accumulated memories among African and African descendant communities who have undergone generations of suppression.  As African descendant women, they have become rooted through culture -- a culture retained notably in in the preparation of food where stories upon stories are held and passed among generations over the stove and at the Kitchen table. Love|Fortè posits that in memory there are signs that demarcate a common language. They're asking how does the captive mind look in memory, and are there stories, hopes, dreams, desires, and fears that color it's landscape, architecture, and geography?
