Memory in Time of the Refugee
MEMORY IN TIME OF THE REFUGEE by Melissa Flower Natalie Romero Marx
Memory in the Time of the Refugee is an audio-visual-movement piece that explores ideas of body, land, freedom and the displaced, at the intersection of research and embodiment, based on a series of 2014 interviews with a group of women who left their home countries to live in the U.S. Their perspectives–from a time before–are now a piece of history and in our midst. We hold vigil to the refugee, performing the slippage of our own identities. Performances and photography by Natalie Marx and Melissa Flower Gladney. Interviews collected by Melissa Flower Gladney, Rashed Haq, and Lisa Villegas in Houston, Texas. .
