Since January 2021, choreographer Jenny Oliver has been working on a series of dances inspired by her lived experience and the experiences of those in her community in response to isolation, grief and loss. Through film and movement, this event will ask you to reflect on the questions that fueled the creation of a new work in this series: What does it mean to belong to a person, to a place, to yourself? In a time where many people are navigating place, space and increased screen time, experience the joy of dance as a way to be closer to ourselves and others.
Belonging is a grantee of Live Arts Boston 2022 and is a recipient of a 2022 LAB Grant. Through movement, drawing, and discussion, BELONGING will be an experiential performance workshop series that will creatively engage audiences in the questions: “What does it mean to Belong to a person, to place, to yourself?
This event premiered on May 14, 2022 at the WBUR CitySpace theater in Boston, MA (watch here).
