WORKSHOP: Saturday June 18th 1-3pm at Washington Avenue Green. We will be moving in relation to the river and the trees and land in this beautiful nature trail next to Lenape Sippu (Delaware River). This workshop will focus on listening, creating, and improvising using movement, the voice, and natural materials in the site. It is open to all. Wear tennis shoes and bring a water bottle.

PROPELLED ANIMALS are a collective of artists, dancers, scholars, musicians, and designers embedding 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.
