About this Event

Involuntary Park is an installation and performance by Shannon Stewart in collaboration with Iris McCloughan, Jeff Becker, Adam Sekuler, Jen Davis and the landscape known as the Hanford Reach.

Make a reservation for a one on one performance (in-person) by selecting your day/time and making an optional donation.

COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS - These are performances in that there is a "live" aspect. They only happen with another person present but they follow all COVID 19 protocols for modified phase 1. See below for details.

You may also sign up for a VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE here.

(Running time approx 15 minutes, no mandatory audience participation requried)

Shannon Stewart holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Dance Performance from Tulane University and a BA in Urban Design from the University of Washington. Her work explores the intersection of dance with embodied identities, somatic archives, and social choregraphies. She works across and through disciplines but her creative practice is body-centered, understanding that change, healing, and connectedness on both an individual and collective level must consider and confront what the body holds.

Shannon’s work has been presented nationally and internationally in theaters, galleries, and on screens. Her last work RELATIVES was nominated for Outstanding Choreography by the Big Easy Classical Arts Awards and invited to the Victoria and Albert Gallery in London. She curates and produces the BE / WITH improvisation series and the FUTURE OCEANS Festival showcasing emerging international voices. As a performer in galleries, she has interpreted the work of Deborah Hay, Joan Jonas, and Tino Seghal among others.

Performances are free but donations to support this work can be made here:

A portion of all proceeds go to the Columbia River Keeper

Performer's note about safety: I'm getting tested weekly for COVID 19 in advance of the weekend's performances. I will never be in the same room as you and will always wear a mask indoors. For safety and artistic reasons, the performance is only open to one audience member at a time. There is time between and during each visit to let fresh air circulate through the space. This experience should feel even safer than being in a grocery store or even walking through a gallery with a couple other people in the building. If you have any concerns, please contact me.

You may also visit the gallery as specified hours when there are not performances happening if you would like to opt out of the performance.

If you experience symptoms associated with COVID 19, are contact traced, or simply change your mind and feel uncomfortable coming, please cancel your reservation.
