Aniccha Arts presents Prairie|Concrete on September 10
Prairie|Concrete – Join us as we dance with plants! How do we dance for, with, and around plants and invite our communities into that experience? How can we learn to dance from the shapes, forms, and life cycles of the plants around us?
Join Aniccha Arts for a public performance gathering at Frogtown Farm. This gathering is the culmination of Prairie|Concrete, a project that brings visibility to plant cycles and growing practices through embodied listening and movement sessions with communities in Imnizaska, (where the white rock bluffs form what we now call St. Paul, Minnesota). This is a chance to re-pattern the ways in which we connect with our environment.
