an open dancefloor for rewilding thought and movement
2/23 2022, 7-9PM, THE ARK, EAST CAMPUS
Free and open to all. Drop-in drop-out. Bring a friend.

Meshroom is a performance environment that forms an intellectual/intentional community around an open dancefloor. It is a space for transcending narrow languages, ungrounding from fixed realities, and co-creating temporary worlds in movement. Meshroom is shaped by the movement, dreams, hopes, and queerness of everyone in the room: it is a weaving of wild minds and soft bodies. All visitors are welcome to move, rest, witness, think, melt, and dance with live music and occasional performances. The event will be video documented for archival use and purposes.

Live electro-acoustic music: Michael Grigoni / Ethan Foote / Mauro Mastrapasqua / Andy Stack
Collaborating artists: Miki Zhu / Brooks Emanuel Angela Risi / Julia Piper / Joey Rauch / Gi Chun / Nicole Schwartz / Kate Alexandrite

Meshroom is curated by Marika Niko and Leo Ryan, supported by the MFA in Dance: Embodied Interdisciplinary Praxis.

An initiative of the Laboratory for Social Choreography, Kenan Institute of Ethics in collaboration with Bass Connections: Performing Embodied Communities.
