Embodied Stories: Earth Day Celebration

Thursday, April 22nd 2021, 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Online Event, 2400 Ridge Rd Berkeley, CA 94709

To celebrate Earth Day, CARe is partnering with the GTU’s Women's Studies in Religion and the newly created Center for Climate Justice and Faith at the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary to talk about climate justice and gender justice through the lens of the arts.

Please join us on Zoom where local dancer KJ Dahlaw will offer a reflection on their practice, and lead us in gentle movement of our own. KJ Dahlaw is a Bay Area dance artist and makes work under the name of Unruly Body Tanztheater. They hold an MFA in Dance from Saint Mary's College of CA and a BFA in Dance Performance from Northern Illinois University. KJ’s work examines unruliness; queer theology; the body; and practices of counter-hegemony in the dancing body. KJ is exploring the lineage of tanztheater and has a background in ballet, modern dance, and improvisational practices.

No dance experience necessary! This event is open to all, regardless of gender identity or expression.
