So, what is Portraits in Motion: Sketches of Soulsville about?

We are making dance films that capture the whiff, shadow, and dream of three endangered sites in the South Memphis neighborhood of Soulsville. Our goal is to memorialize them, share their significance and contribute to their preservation before they are gone or changed forever. In so doing, we hope to uplift the image of the neighborhood, afford it the respect it deserves, so that we can all celebrate its unique and remarkable contributions to our music heritage.
