Eco Dance Labs

A series of eco-dance labs will be offered throughout the summer 2016 in Red Hook, Bklyn. Each LAB is an interactive walk framed by pairing ruderal plants with a particular body function to experiment, play, and re-connect to our natural environment.


We invite people to join us to discover the role plants (that often considered weeds & therefore disregarded and discarded) have on our well-being, our community relationships, and our understanding of reciprocity.

Each walk is paired with a specific body system and encourages us to connect to this reciprocal relationship between the body and the earth. The walks engage all our senses, bodies in movements and community sharing.
Our next walks are the respiratory system with Plantain, Mullein and Mallow in August and the circulatory system with Mugwort in September.

About the artists

Eva Perrotta and Corinne Cappelletti create deep-rooted, shared experience through performative, public actions from which result in a wildcrafted choreographic landscape.

Their process is grounded in the study of how nature grows and the act of witnessing its imperceptible changes. Within nature’s slow and steady growth process they find self-support and engage participants in an act of reciprocity. As a container of support and witness, they stretch the boundaries between people and place within the practice of seeing and being seen.

Eva and Corinne build dances with the community, drawing from what is available locally. With this, a self-sustaining relationship can develop; one based on reciprocity and a co-creative system of giving. Self-sustainability, community, and creativity are at the heart of their artistic interest.
