SAID.I.MEANT, a current work by Megan Bascom & Dancers, is a project influenced by global news and the growing number of people seeking refuge worldwide for reasons of war or natural disaster. Referencing the work of the UNHCR, whose goal is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees, SAID.I.MEANT takes a look at human experiences of transition, relocation, and the elements of life that wash away and get left behind. Exploring the components that cause changes in our lives, whether sudden and forced, or gradual and chosen, this work considers the flotsam and jetsam that come and go with time, affecting memory, tradition, and identity.
Premiered Presented by Triskelion Arts Muriel Schulman Theater April 2015
