If we want to change our societies, we must first learn what change and transformation look like and feel like in our own bodies. Dance is a practice comprised of continuous transitions – infinite spaces to further develop liberation as a practice by saying NO to dualism and saying YES to complexity, intersections, and hybridity. With a body-centered approach, the diversity of our experiences informs strategies for transitioning away from growth-focused consumerist movement patterns that rely on fossil fuels. In dance improvisation, we are constantly making choices. In this workshop we choose to recognize, question, and move through the pain that racist, colonial, and patriarchal hierarchies have caused. We begin with breath – the foundation to all movement, and incrementally explore different components of social and environmental justice that can be researched via movement, storytelling, sounding, and stillness.
