You Cannot Cover the Sun with Mud is a project planned as a Visual Album based on the collaboration of director and choreographer Raja Feather Kelly, seven movement artists, videographer Laura Snow, photographer Kate Enman, musician Emily Wells, and musical director Remy Kurs. A visual album of poetry, dance, history, and sound. A focus on the surreal and an admiration of Brooklyn. Combining sound, writing, movement, music, and image, with Brooklyn as my backdrop, I will provide a new multidisciplinary chapter to speak to Brooklyn's history.
