Blue Morph Collective is a Brooklyn based interdisciplinary arts collective with a mission to be an oasis for artists. Artists from diverse backgrounds are invited to exchange stories, grow empathic connections through collaboration, and produce performances from a place of rest. A Place Called Home, is a site-specific, immersive performance art show at Domino Park. Each performing artist will present a collaborative piece based on their personal stories around the themes of migration and immigration, urban renewal and gentrification, family lineage and home – all while posing the question to the audience, “what is home?” The project is an invitation to remember the rich history of the people who lived and worked in the Williamsburg community of Brooklyn in this space that is now Domino Park but at one time employed thousands of Domino Sugar Refinery employees for almost 150 years. A Place Called Home, in part, is inspired by the work of Kara Walker’s 2014 exquisite art installation “A Subtlety” before the demolition of the Domino Sugar Plant. Through this event, we hope to share personal stories that can potentially bring healing to the mind, body and spirit of all who allow themselves to be immersed in the experience.
