About the Event

DOMINICA GREENE (she.her) is a Black woman who cherishes and channels her Caribbean heritage and Queerness into an art-based existence. Greene creates conceptual, body-based art rooted in her belief that dance is not something to be learned, but an innate entity that we all have access to and are perpetually engaging with. Weaving her core research practices of duration, somatics, raving, and ancestral channeling, her work aims to reflect nature, human and otherwise, as a way of highlighting humanity and the stark sameness and differences and sameness in the differences within all of us. @draminica

YIANNIS LOGOTHETIS: I practice. I dance. I heal. I'm a non-binary interdisciplinary artivist and teacher with a focus on performance, dance improvisation and movement medicine. I'm based in New York although I'm constantly on the move. My passion for learning multiple disciplines, meeting different cultures, celebrating the virtue of the body through the wisdom of music, dance and literature allows me to travel around the world observing, performing, creating, teaching and expanding my studies on qigong, contemplative action practices and decolonization. Currently, I'm engaged in project-based works with American Modern Opera Company(AMOC), Corpo Maquina under Evangelos Biskas, and Yang Zhen Company. My recent and past artistic collaborations and studies include some prestigious contemporary artists such as Bobbi Jene Smith, Crystal Pite, Andrea Miller, Maxine Doyle, Daria Fain, Bonnie Cohen, Boaz Yakin, Elton John. Following my dance degree from Marymount Manhattan College, I joined the cast of the award-winning production of Sleep No More NYC by Punchdrunk International. While still performing, creating, and sharing my collaborative works globally, my focus does not disengage from a constant connection with self-healing work through qigong, somatics and antiracism studies, continuous exploration of my inner being, dismantling anything that obstructs my creative and authentic self. My love for connecting people through dance and music, led me to co-find the Warrior Poets in 2017, a team of artists that creates and produces work seeking to connect people through live dance and music performances, parties, and workshops all around the world. Born in Seattle, Washington, raised in Thessaloniki, Greece, I have acquired professional dance training which includes but not limited to contemporary, hip hop, popping, house, ballet, modern, ballroom and standard dance, greek folklore, contact improvisation, argentine tango. “When I connect with the polyrhythmic groove of nature, my essences are awakened; when awakened, the essences bring my prenatal and postnatal qi in harmony and my spirits can flow unrestrained; in such a state my mind is free from knowledge, and meditation becomes a way of being rather than doing.” I'm currently making my own solo work that will be traveling around the world starting in 2024. @rupturable
