Trans Body: An Exploration of embodied history and corporeality through dance
An exploration of embodied history and corporeality through dance
Elm City Dance Collective and the New Haven Pride Center collaborate on a month-long process workshop with a community of Trans identified people, non-dancers and dancers a like, to explore meaning, making and movement within the context of transgender identity, history and corporeality.
The project asks, how do we embody and perform our own history? How do we tell stories about ourselves through movement? How can we express trans identity through dance?
The project participants will showcase their work, a movement piece, on Saturday, March 30th at 2:00pm. FREE — at United Church on the Green Parish House at 323 Temple Street, New Haven.
WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
We are looking for 10-15 transgender identified individuals to participate in the creation of the work and perform. Our next Trans Body project will be in FALL 2019. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The March 2019 project partnered with the Nasty Women Connecticut's exhibition Complicit: Erasure of the Body at Yale Divinity School.
