glacial erratics is a body of research and form of ceremony that allows space for embodiments of care, kinship, grief, and rebellion with and for the more-than-human world. glacial erratics focuses specifically on the transformation of glacial ice and its retreating existence from our planet. It asks how dancing for more-than-human life is a way to remember, re-encounter, and embody a futurity that is yet to be known.
glacial erratics honors the existence of more-than-human origin stories, and how beings like glaciers shape the ground beneath our feet. It also focuses on what can live inside the aftermath of decay, what emerges from the rubble left behind. It honors listening through the ground, becoming loyal to it; the body as conduit; listening for the hum of the world. Dance as a form of remediation, healing, and survival.
this iteration of glacial erratics / echo dune was performed at SPACE Gallery in Portland, Maine. Filmed by Thalassa Raasch. Sound composed by Jake Meginksy.
