Black and White. Girls through boys. Boys through girls. Streets to rivers. On decks. With lights. Holding ice. Holding fire. Raging, dancing, singing, laughing. Here we are, designed for the virtual-meeting platform, is a site-responsive collage of mini-performances by Propelled Animals.
The Propelled Animals are a collective of artists, dancers, scholars, musicians, and designers imbedding innovative and provocative art in unconventional spaces. They are committed to creating work that interrogates, challenges, and attempts to dismantle the systemic "isms" of oppression. They collaborate and adapt to address the specific needs of the communities they engage. Their performances encourage efficacy of the body, resilience, and radical tenderness as strategies for self and communal empowerment. They are centered on art as social action and ritual as performance.
