Makeda Thomas is celebrating her 10th Anniversary season on Friday, 14 June and Saturday, 15 June 2013 at New York Live Arts.  Each evening, Makeda will be joined by noted dance and performance scholar, Thomas F. DeFrantz in a discussion about her work and process. 

Performances will feature a preview excerpt of the highly anticipated, make. believe., a new work in collaboration with poet  Queen GodIs. A project of Creative Capital, Make. Believe. is set to premiere in 2014. Described as an evening-length, multimedia movement; a dream state of dance, poetry, visual art, music and food, Make. Believe. uses science fiction as a storytelling tool to retrace and recreate moments from the space/time lapse between the collaborators’ first and present encounters. The project also engages Grisha Coleman (Music Composition), Tamilla Woodard (Dramaturgy), Stephen Arnold (Lighting Design), and Sean Naftel (Set Construction).
