Change from Within: Diversifying the Environmental Movement

Thu Jun 1 2017

Olympic Sculpture Park

PACCAR Pavilion

7 PM – 8 PM

Pop-Up Performance and Talk Back

Fostered by The Center for Creative Conservation, Jasmmine Ramgotra creates a movement-based representation of her interviews and research that explores the lack of diversity in the environmental field and solutions for improvement. Ramgotra conducted qualitative in-person interviews with a variety of leaders in Seattle’s environmental community including individuals in government, NGO’s, business, and academia.

Change from Within delivers the findings of Ramgotra’s research in the cross-disciplinary format of contemporary dance. Using the interview audio as a sound score, and four dancers to communicate the message, the performance presents clear takeaways about how to create positive change on an individual level.

Change from Within features Esra Cömert-Morishige, Megumi Hosaka, Peter Kohring, and Sean O’Bryan as performers/movement collaborators. The 20-minute performance will be followed by an audience and collaborator discussion to reflect on the piece collectively, focusing on our dissonances, insight, and collective inspirations.
