Event description

Description

Are you a serious dancer or do you just love to watch dance? Either way, come along with us during our walk-and-talk with Christal Brown and her students as we meet with Clemmons Family Farm owners Jack and Lydia Clemmons, tour some the Farm's historic buildings and beautiful working landscape, and explore its potential in a new dance project that is in the earliest stage of development.

“Native + Stranger” is an exciting new collaboration between two outstanding performing artists who blend dance, multiculturalism, politics, healing and much, much more- into creative expression. Christal Brown is an interdisciplinary artist who works through the medium of dance to investigate the cultural, social, and evolving discourse of humanity. Christal is also Director of the Dance Company of Middlebury and Dance Program Chair of Middlebury College, and an award-winning choreographer. Christal will be working with Rulan Tangen, whose art values movement as an expression of indigenous worldview including the honoring of matriarchal leadership, dance as functional ritual for transformation and healing, the process of decolonizing the body, and the animistic energetic connection with all forms of life on earth. She has recruited and nurtured a new generation of Indigenous contemporary dancers. Rulan is also the Director of Dancing Earth.

Brainstorm with us on ways Christal, Rulan and the Middlebury dance students could engage local community members, young and old, in a place-based investigation of self, environment, evolution and truth through dance.

This is a free and easy-going pop-up event on the Farm. To ensure the quality of our multicultural experience, we are limiting participation to the first 10 dancers (and/or those who just love to watch dance) who sign up.

Attire: Thinking caps and walking (or dancing!) shoes. We will be walking-and-talking, thinking, and possibly doing some impromptu dancing, around different outdoor and indoor areas on the Farm.

PS: Please do check out all the hyperlinks above so that you see just why we are SO THRILLED to be a part of this early phase of an amazing creative work-in-progress right here in Vermont!!!!!
