Interactive Inspiration Map for Katherine Dunham’s Repertory

Antonio Jimenez Mavillard created this map to visualize the Repertory dataset manually curated by Harmony Bench, Kate Elswit, and Tia-Monique Uzor. This visualization shows the sites Dunham identified as places of inspiration for her choreography, which are supported with quotations from Dunham’s program notes that show the connections that she made between pieces and places. Cumulatively, these locations show Dunham’s view of the world, and also how she sometimes mixed these sites of inspiration together.
