Event description

Description

Erin Ellen Kelly is a dancer and contemporary movement artist. During Excavate/Activate, Kelly seeks to activate a mindful relationship between individuals, their bodies, and the spaces they occupy. Through a series of workshops that draw from her background in qi gong, butoh, somatics, dance, and theatre, she will guide members of the public—dancers and non-dancers alike—as they produce their own concise, intimate movement-based rituals. Sited along Newtown Creek, an industrial waterway with a long history of pollution, Kelly will invite workshop attendees to practice being within the self amidst an imperfect landscape. Participants will then perform their rituals in an event shared with the broader Open Source audience.
