1922 was a project housed in a larger series called the memory (loss) bank, in which choreographer Shannon Stewart and director Adam Sekuler, explored the the ephemeral, overly documented, and purposefully forgotten aspects of our lives, neighborhoods and cities. Tasked with exploring the traces of each rooms inhabitants, dancers choreographed an exploration of the lived memory of each space.
