Free the Body is an interdisciplinary and social justice research project conceived by GROUND SERIES
Free the Body is an interdisciplinary and social justice research project conceived by GROUND SERIES co-director and choreographer Brittany Delany with dancer Lauren Bright, sound designer Peter DiGennaro and visual artist Brittany North. The project explores questions, relations and sensations of what it means to free the body, within personal, cultural, social and political settings. Dance, sound art and visual art will create an interactive installation. In addition, Free the Body artists and community partners will host public programs, providing connections to resources for abolition, bodily autonomy, reproductive justice, healthcare and human rights. Free the Body draws from a wide range of sources, including: the natural world, physiology, gender studies, performance studies, abolition feminism, Hip Hop, Terror Management Theory, formal Human Rights standards, Chinese Astrology and Zen Buddhism. The artists share research on the GROUND SERIES Blog. What does it mean to free the body, within personal, cultural, social and political settings?How to free the body?
