Nature in Absentia

Projection of a video about my installation Monarch Migrations, during which I will describe the project and invite guests to write migration stories on handmade milkweed papers, and maybe read a few of the stories I have collected so far.

reading (45 min)
A collaborative Tarot reading and energy circle with the Outsider Tarot, focusing on the theme ‘Peace.’ Each participant will meditate on the concept, select a card from the deck, and read the associated epigraph/meditation from the guidebook. A project that took 10 years to research, create and self-publish, the Outsider Tarot reinterprets the ubiquitous Golden Dawn and Rider Waite decks from a modern queer perspective, emphasizing inclusivity and diversity within the original esoteric framework.

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance
Reshaping Choreographic Approaches
Movement Workshop (20-45 min)
Teresa Fellion will lead an experiential movement improvisation and composition experience where people are invited to participate in pedestrian movement scores (low stakes, fun, and no prior movement experience necessary). These are intriguing, inspirational, and definitely FUN ways of interacting with others through movement and igniting the brain and body in some dynamic ways. Some of these include a scored movement obstacle course (no props, just ourselves in the space-don’t worry we aren’t climbing under furniture or anything wild), walking scores, circular patterns, and other felt movement forms with partners, as individuals, and/or in groups. These scores are wonderful tools from Equus Projects that Teresa has been investigating and learning from JoAnna Mendl Shaw through choreographic research and mentorship that activate connection with our brains, bodies, and each other.
Nattie Trogdon + Hollis Bartlett
Performance/ artist talk (30 min)
With Brendan Drake, Wendell Gray II, Noa Weiss, Katerina Belmatch, Symara Sarai, Nattie Trogdon, Hollis Bartlett
Fallacies’ is a movement work of reference and research project that culls known dances from pop culture and bodily memory to live in the space between replication and translation. Nattie + Hollis will share movement sequences from this choreographic archival practice and have an open discussion around this work exploring originality, possession, and meaning-making through dance.

Performance / video presentation + talk back (45 min)
We exercise our freedom by voicing out loud our opinions. Hungry Listening is calling on that freedom of speech (communication & language) in a space of empathy where sounds, movements and vibrations are sufficient.
Throughout the day
Ronit Levin Delgado
