Conversing 1 : Embodying Place

Participatory performative inquiry
Guelph 2018

How can a somatic practice such as dance mediate our relationship to place?

I asked dancer Katie Ewald to facilitate a participatory movement based happening exploring this question at the site of ReMediate, my installation at the former landfill in Guelph. Referencing the tactile communication of insects and the dance language of honey bees, this event explored notions of attention, communication and collectivity as a way to be in space and in place, together.
