In 1976, downtown New York dancer/choreographer Wendy Perron began an accumulating project, creating movement every day that reflected the interior and exterior landscape of that day. She titled it The Daily Mirror. In 2021, upon recently uncovering the only documentation of this practice, five pages of photos by French cinematographer Babette Mangolte, Perron asked dancer Morgan Griffin to re-imagine the work with these images as source material and provide it a new life through another dancing body. As intended, the work will be passed on to this next generation and the living archive continued through Mangolte’s photographic documentation.
