COLECTA Movimiento Basura // Trash Movement fundraiser
Since 2015 Dance to the People has been conducting movement outings open to the public at beaches, parks, and other public spaces.
In 2019, we started to include trash in the movement practice, to experience it physically, as an undeniable object, product of a consumerist society.
We place trash at eye level, to open conversations and calls for change regarding the current changing social and environmental climate -- popular uprisings, indigenous resistance, and the destruction of the natural world, at the local and global levels.
We want to offer a practice that, through sensation and movement, can bring awareness of the equal value of all existing life forms, to de-center Western capitalistic human experience, and decolonize our bodies.
Embodied participation helps us share autonomous ways of living that empower us as consumers, and encourage waste reduction.
