Inspired by the work of four New York City poets, THINGS I CARRY INTO THE WORLD is an abstract meditation on the body, the feminine, the everyday realities of being young and black, and the fragile relationship between the manmade and the natural.

Based on the poem by Cynthia Manick. Created for the seventh season of Motionpoems.
