WELCOME BY JENNIFER PAYÁN
Hi and welcome to tonights first ever Friday's with UNA. We are excited to share with you in these series of live-stream works. My name is Jennifer Payán, I'm the Artistic Associate and one of the performers for the company. Tonight we'll be sharing Deserts, its a series of four works, Atacama, Bronco, Cadet and Fatima. All four of these are kind of the chapters of the full piece Deserts. This was one of my first performances with the company, and so its very special to me. I remember growing a lot from it, with its rigor and kind of subtlety in time, and also just dancing with special, mighty dancers. I remember being obsessed with the duet Bronco because of these three minutes on stage, just like, face-off and thrashing, super fun with Rebecca Margolick, who's a beast. I hope you're excited to see it, and especially join us for December 4th's virtual fundraiser, we'll be sharing a little film we have been working on in quarantine, and some work-in-progress bits. Yeah, mark your calendars, and enjoy!
We would like to acknowledge that this was performed
on the original land of the Lenape people, now known as NYC.
