Join collaborators from the Roots of Movement project for an informal performance and pizza at Middlebury College Organic Farm! The collaborators will perform their reflective explorations drawing upon their creative research considering body, movement, land, place, and sustainability. Following the performance, stay to talk with the artists and enjoy warm beverages and pizza made in the farm’s new oven! Roots of Movement is a creative research project conducted during summer and fall 2016. The project was brought to life by Middlebury dance majors Miguel Castillo ’17.5, Mandy Kimm ‘17, Lorena Neira ‘17, Andrew Pester ‘17, Otto Pierce ‘16, and Andrew W. Mellon Interdisciplinary Choreographer, Maree ReMalia.
