16 Blues explores healing from the impact of gun violence and police brutality on the body thru the investigation of the 16 shots aimed at Laquan McDonald. The performance begins with an original song composition. The soundtrack is composed of original text and experimental sound. It is supported by a constant stream of 528 Hz, a binaural beat associated with healing and DNA regeneration, so as to heal the trauma held in the blood memory. Yanvalou and Nago rhythms open and close the piece, to welcome support and ignite and remind us of our warrior spirit and the need to continue to fight against gun violence. Movement honors the trauma inflicted from the viewpoint of the female form, working toward healing through performance and dance.
