About the Grant

$10,600 to support Niicugni (MAP 2012), a new performance and installation by Emily Johnson.

About the Project

Niicugni is a new performance and installation centered on movement, story, and sound housed within a light and sound installation of handmade, functional, fish-skin lanterns. Niicugni equates the land we live on with cells comprising our bodies. He calls upon audiences to remember that the land is alive with ancestry, memory, and possibility—and our bodies also hold these things. Taking into account the simultaneous forces that build and break down our bodies and earth, it brings life, death, ceremony, and destruction to the conversation.
