BodyCartography’s Resisting Extinction is a performance work that cultivates humble tools to support our collective (human/non-human) evolution. We will offer practices for grieving and resisting extinction amidst this spiraling ecological devastation. Resisting Extinction will manifest through three simultaneously unfolding performance events along shorelines and riverbanks in different communities. This specific offering as a grieving practice. An ecosomatic offering for living on a damaged earth.
Resisting Extinction is being developed by Olive Bieringa, Otto Ramstad, Maria Lothe, Sigrid Marie Kittelsaa Vesaas, Laressa Dickey, and Hanna Filomen
