We’ll remember your spine, Matr. – Velocity Dance @ Freeway Park (Downtown Seattle) ☀️
Jul 20 @ 6:00 pm

Seattle Festival of Dance + Improvisation’s professional cohort presents an extended embodied listening practice, choreographed by Jasmine Hearn. This showing is a culmination of a week-long experience that bridges practices of dance, movement, and embodied poetics. The performers will listen to the land coordinates of Freeway Park while considering its history and potential future sourcing land and celestial histories of the site’s coordinates.

The creative process centers the prompt, what do I listen to in order to arrive and depart as a keeper of this place and its collective memory? Together with our breathing, stilling, listening, and moving bodies, we will build recipes in response. We will build this moment together. This showing is for audiences of all ages.

Location: Freeway Park (700 Seneca St, Seattle)

Free to attend. Advance registration requested.
