Ecological Bodies

Ecological bodies was a week long somatic-oriented festival I co-created with my friend and collaborator Hannah Krafcik. This festival emerged out of our personal inquiry into how our interaction with and “story of” the space and objects around us shapes the relationship we have with our interior. In this festival we gathered a group of colleagues to share practices and perspectives around the same theme. After five days of classes and workshops in Portland, OR, we invited collaborating artists to travel to the Oregon Coast to conduct further research. Throughout the festival we harvested scores, writing, photographs, and drawings which are now available on our website.
