If I Die: Recycle Renew Release is made possible with the support of the Pittsburgh Foundation and the Heinz Endowments through the Advancing Black Arts In Pittsburgh. The work investigates the impact of cultural displacement behind the practices of gentrification; is there a reduced sense of belonging, or feeling out of place for the residents that remain? Featuring Anthony Williams and Shad Ali.

‘hybrid memory’ is a composite of two pre-existing duets from slowdanger’s ‘memory 4’ and ‘TETHER’. The work examines the hypothetical concepts of engrams, or memory traces, and the claim that the brain simultaneously stores two versions of each event; one for long term memory and one for short. ‘hybrid memory’ fuses several theatrical elements (including LED light) to generate an evocative performance landscape of fragmented memory.
