THE WAIT ROOM
Robert
Rauschenberg Foundation Artist as Activist Fellow

2017 – 2019
More details coming soon!

Flyaway is proud to announce that Artistic Director Jo Kreiter is the first choreographer named as a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation 2017 Artist as Activist Fellow. As part of a two-year grant, Jo’s work, along with the other fellows’ work, will encourage people to move beyond awareness and take action on the injustices that mass incarceration causes generations of immigrants and people of color in the United States.

The Wait Room is a dance performance installation that exposes the physical, psychic, and emotional burden of incarceration for women with imprisoned loved ones. Via a series of custom-made chairs suspended by a counterweight system, the project invokes the balancing act women have to maintain when stripped of emotional and economic support from their partners and family.
