In Blackbird’s Ventriloquy Molly Shanahan reopens the archive of her 2007 solo project My Name is a Blackbird, the 2007 project that changed her approach to body, dance, and performance. The archive that informs Blackbird’s Ventriloquy is both literal and figurative, based palpably in Shanahan’s body, and in dozens of hours of archival video footage, recorded conversations/interviews, and personal journals.  Shanahan states, “Blackbird’s Ventriloquy is a new project with a long and complicated memory. I’m joined by Kevin O’Donnell, who worked with me during the past two years on creating sound for the piece, and movement coach/longtime collaborator Kristina Fluty.”
