DNAWORKS adapted our dance-theatre production HaMapah/The Map, which has toured the world since 2010, into a dance-on-film in order to engage more audiences. Cinematographer Laura Bustillos Jáquez traveled with Adam W. McKinney and Daniel Banks to film in: Benin, West Africa; Kraków and Siedlanka, Poland; Colt, Forrest City, and Palestine, Arkansas; St. Louis, Missouri; Harlowton and Lewistown, Montana; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In HaMapah/The Map Dance-on-Film, Adam dances in the ancestral locations referenced in HaMapah/The Map. As part of the residencies in these cities, DNAWORKS led workshops, created new work with local dancers, and curated happenings with local residents.
