Dark Mourning explores the visceral moments that is universally shared when someone or something passes. Juxtaposing sadness, struggle, fear, and loneliness are moments of acceptance, acknowledgement and even happiness. “Dark Mourning is not all about suffering. It also reflects the beauty and enjoyment of life.”

*Dark Mourning was made possible in part by a 2013 Dance at Socrates Residency through Norte Maar and Socrates Sculpture Park
