LET ME COME & BE GOING
Let Me Come & Be Going uses modes of transportation as a conduit to investigate class, culture and citizenship. It offers a reflection on the individual and collective experience of being on a journey for a ‘better life’, constantly grappling with what we are dealt, and aggressively trying to move towards arriving at the material markers of ‘success’, which are constructed and powered by inhumane conditions. It is an affirmation that for us, despite disruptions to our psyche and societies, we have created powerful movements and practices rooted in the simplicity, beauty and celebration of life. In other words, We Move.
