Choreographer Pioneer Winter and sound artist Juraj Kojs will collaborate with performers and community members on a Pride Month activation at the Electric Tree. Collected oral histories and elder stories of ‘first prides’ will become an interactive soundscape for dancers to embody themes of memory, resilience, and community – reflecting on the Electric Tree created by artist Mark Handforth as a meeting place for corporeal and social exchange.
