Building A Better Fishtrap

Building a Better Fishtrap is an iterative performance project exploring water, memory and home, and examining what we carry with us, leave behind and reclaim. The work, inspired by the fishing stories of my 88-year-old father, will premiere in 2015 at Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, followed by a site-responsive installation on the Bronx River.


Paloma McGregor is a Caribbean-born, Harlem-based artist and organizer. Since moving to New York in 2004, she has created performance for theaters, outdoor stages, abandoned buildings, parks and a river. She directs Angela’s Pulse and Dancing While Black, an initiative that supports black dance artists through process, production and dialogue.
