(Un)belonging is a participatory installation with projected animations, video and live performance. (Un)belonging presents a powerful exploration of both resistance and transcendence of the many boundaries faced in our world: emotional, political, physical. A video of a silhouette-performer is projected onto a screen with a slit that allows for passage through it. The manifestation “to belong” resides in the body, expressing moments of kindness, acceptance and welcoming versus rejection or pushing away. What is the impulse that wants to push the next newcomer out? This cycle of welcoming and excluding is explored through projected shadow movements which transgress these borderlines. I collaborated with three performers of color to choreograph movement cycles in response to the projected shadow figure and borderlines. Between the live performances, viewers are invited to move through the portal-like space and interact with the moving silhouette.
