Jennifer Monson, artistic director, choreographer and performer at the iLAND-Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art, Nature and Dance, will present "Moving Places: A Lecture Demonstration of Environmental Dance" on Monday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in Marsh Lounge, Billings.
Monson will show videos from the past decade of her environmental dance work. Using examples from the projects BIRD BRAIN, iMAP /Ridgewood Reservoir, Mahomet Aquifer Project, and SIP (sustained immersive process)/watershed she will discuss the interconnections between movement, choreography and environmental thought and science. She will perform a brief solo and invite the audience to engage in some of the basic perceptual practices she has developed.
The event, part of the James Marsh Professors-at-Large program, is free and open to the public.
