In this practice-based course open to all, we will reexamine the ways we relate to our/the environment(s) and generate strategies for a new environmental ethics that calls a human-centered world into question. Through reading, writing, conversing, and moving we will consider how somatic and artistic practices might shift our ecological understandings. Together we will think/move through concepts of ‘body’ and ‘environment,’ ask questions of and through modes of perception and the sensorial, and experiment with an expanding empathy to enact new relations. In the end, we will create group and personal practices to rehearse these new relational movement values.
