The 1 Mile Radius Project
1MRP: EXPERIENCE SPACE DIFFERENTLY
HOW CAN DANCE, DESIGN, AND FILM CHANGE THE WAY WE SEE SPACE?
Our human imprint and the memory of our movement linger in spaces well after we have migrated through them. The 1 Mile Radius Project explores these imprints and the unique spaces of a community through resident interviews, site-specific movement research, and interactive design.
HOW IT STARTED- 2017
The first iteration of this work took place in Mt. Rainier Maryland in the 1 mile radius surrounding Joe's Movement Emporium, which serves as a vital community and artistic hub to the area. This project was initially kicked off in spring of 2017 as part of a NextLOOK Artist Residency by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and Joe's Movement Emporium. Additional support was provided by Brentwood Arts Exchange, Maryland State Arts Council, and Maryland Parks & Recreation.
1MRP REBOOTED- 2018
The 1MRP was commissioned again for a second NextLOOK Artist Residency in 2018. A second year of walking the streets and working with artists and community members of the Mt. Rainier and North Brentwood communities lead to new discovers and a brand new dance, design, and film installation at Joe's Movement Emporium. This years projects featured QR Codes that were mapped and posted around the 1 mile radius to give audience and community members access to special dance film content in the spaces it was created. The website was also launched which will serve as an ongoing archive of the process and work of The 1 Mile Radius Project.
