De-mystifying the Box explores the embodied and emotional impacts of the climate crisis. Within this workshop, anna thompson and taylor knight will engage participants in creative process frameworks and somatic experiences to sense deeper into the micro-ecosystems of our bodies. For 90 minutes, participants will be facilitated through groove, effort, awareness modalities, and authentic movement to move collectively – working in solo and group improvised compositional games and tasks used within the creation process of SUPERCELL. The final half hour will be used to engage in a collective dialogue and community processing surrounding the themes of SUPERCELL and the local impacts of the climate crisis.


taylor knight (they/them) & anna thompson (they/them) are co-founding artistic directors of slowdanger, a multidisciplinary performance organism based in Pittsburgh, PA. slowdanger uses a systematic approach to movement, integrative technology, found material, electronic instrumentation, vocalization, physiological centering, and ontological examination to produce their performance work, which utilizes ritual practice to delve into circular life patterning including effort, transformation, and death. Through the process of making each piece, slowdanger works with an ever deepening understanding of energy, synergy, action, gender, time, and storytelling. As a queer, non-binary led organization, slowdanger is committed to deconstructing the binaries of how performance and performers are viewed onstage through their performances, workshops and public facing engagements.
