For the past four years, Caribbean-born choreographer Paloma McGregor has been developing BUILDING A BETTER FISHTRAP, a performance project rooted in the vanishing fishing tradition of her 89-year-old father. The project examines what happens when you leave your ancestral home: What do you take with you? Leave behind? Return to reclaim? Building A Better Fishtrap/Part 1 is the NY evening-length premiere of this work presented with the support of long-time partner, BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance. Find out more here
