#movedbyyou Free! August 28th 7-8 PM. Part of The Show Must Go On(line) Pittsburgh series. Part of its KST Global Stream Digital Commissions Program, Kelly Strayhorn Theater presents #movedbyyou a collaborative video exchange between Maree ReMalia and Jil Stifel.
#movedbyyou is an Instagram mini project between Maree ReMalia and Jil Stifel. This project emerges from our work together as artists and our relationship as friends over the past eight years, This video exchange originated as a way to continue engaging in vital embodied practices that support bodies being moved by other bodies, while living with physical distance imposed by geographic location (FL and PA) and the Covid pandemic. Weekly posts act as dialogue and performance meant to activate skills of sensing, initiating, witnessing, listening, and responding and inviting their multifaceted selves to emerge through movement; skills essential for navigating a world in crisis in which humans repeatedly face social and political injustices. For this program they shared the process that unfolded during their first month of making.
