Flyaway is collaborating with Z Space, FR333 hip hop composers MADlines and XOA, rigging designer Karl Gillick and photojournalist Lynn Johnson to create and present The Credibility Project, an off-the-ground dance that explores the right to be believed, for women. This block-long, outdoor, site-specific performance will give spectacular language to a serious sociopolitical issue that has not been carefully examined since Anita Hill challenged Justice Clarence Thomas. Brought to Life by Megan Lowe, Bianca Cabrera, MaryStarr Hope, Yayoi Kambara, Sonsherée Giles, and Sonia Smith, The Credibility Project will use flight, inversion and a defiance of gravity to subvert limitations, to delight in the body despite unjust constraints, and to claim public space as a proving ground for women to be taken seriously in the nation’s collective imagination.
