A video work by performance artist mayfield brooks and Everett Saunders that considers how a sperm whale’s life of darkness, codas, echolocations, and vertical slumbering can choreograph a time of grief. In the virtual presentation of this video work, they ask: What can a barren theater teach me? How does a Black artist dance in the abyss? How can I decompose this show?
