On March 7th, after a morning of conversation between award-winning scholars and artists Saidiya Hartman, Simone Leigh, and Okwui Okpokwasili, the Voice & Body research fellows led the public in an afternoon of shared practice.

Artist/Composer Samita Sinha led a vocal practice using sounds derived from North Indian classical and Bengali folk music, taken apart and put back together through each of our bodies, and our collective body.

Curators Okwui Okpokwasili and Judy Hussie-Taylor, and the full team at Danspace Project thank Samita for her vibrant presence throughout the Platform, for all the work that she holds with deep care, for opening up portals and leading us through.
