FringeArts: Britt Fishel and Artists – Cognatus
September 25 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm$20
Cognatus on the larger scale investigates ecofeminism and the patriarchal mechanisms that assimilate women and nature. Both often devalued and exploited, seeking elevation and liberation, the relationship between them is a rhizome of interconnections. Radical ecofeminism celebrates the relationship between women and nature through the revival of ancient rituals, creating a source of inspiration and empowerment. For socialist ecofeminism, environmental problems are rooted in the rise of capitalist patriarchy and the ideology that the Earth and nature can be exploited for human process through technology. Movement motifs and systems based on this research are created in collaboration with the dancers. Fishel uses history and theory, combined with text and poetry to weave movements that explore ideas of womenhood, cyclical patterns of nature and violence, migration, resistance, and identities in bloom. We invite audience members to dive deeper into community connection and empathy towards both women and our Mother Earth- through reflection, conversation, and action.
This work is site specific, and will utilize the entire MAAS Garden space. Audiences are welcome to sit at any time, or immerse themselves among the artists as they move through the space.
This show is presented as part of Cannonball Festival
