BLOODLINE If love is what we're all longing for, then why does it feel so difficult to receive? We invite you to witness ten performers use street dance, spoken word, and song, unearthing the most intimate workings of their hearts, in an attempt to better understand our shared emotional reality. Drawing from love in all its forms - familial, romantic, esoteric, and abstract - "Bloodline" fuses process and performance highlighting the symbiotic nature of vulnerability and self-empowerment. "Bloodline" is the manifestation of the belief that self-healing is the most important step towards social change and a shift in global consciousness.



Nicole Klaymoon/ Embodiment Project is fiscally sponsored by La Pena Cultural Center and is a recipient of the 2009 Zellerback Grant and Ford Foundation funding. NKEP performed their first original work, "Bloodline," at the Left Coast Leaning Festival at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and at the Crucible Fire Arts Festival, collaborating with renowned vocalists d. Sabela Grimes aka Ovasoul7. Klaymoon has performed in works directed by Rennie Harris, Mark Bamuthi-Joseph, and Meridith Monk. She presented original dance works internationally including two evening length pieces, "The Sixth Vowel", which showcased at Miami Project Hip-Hop and Hop-Hop Theater festival New York and DC, UC Riverside, Philadelphia, and excerpts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. Klaymoon also hosts "The Rebirth," a weekly street dance event sponsored by La Pena Cultural Center and the Ford Foundation, and offers weekly workshop classes at ODC dance school. La Pena's support of NKEP is significant, for as an organization with an established record serving the arts community since 1975, it continues to back artists whose specific goal is to explore innovative aesthetics and address controversial social issues. www.embodimentproject.org

"This age of American Idol and Disney-approved singers has no room for a big, brassy woman who takes no shit and can really belt one out. From Big Mama Thornton to Etta James all the way to Patti Labelle, every generation has had one but ours. It's like when Chuck D asked all those years ago, "Who stole the soul?" Thank goddess for Valerie Troutt and the Fear Of a Fat Planet Crew. Mentored by jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves, Troutt approaches R&B standards, house grooves, and her original socially conscious jazz and soul compositions with the verve of the missing masters." (D. Scot Miller)
