Erin Ellen Kelly, Ode to the Witch, 2013

Erin Ellen Kelly is a dancer and contemporary movement artist. With her Moving Meditations, Kelly seeks to activate a mindful relationship between individuals, their bodies, and the spaces they occupy. Through a series of workshops that draw from her background in qi gong, butoh, somatics, dance, and theatre, she will guide members of the public—dancers and non-dancers alike—as they produce their own concise, intimate movement-based rituals. Sited along Newtown Creek, an industrial waterway with a long history of pollution, Kelly will invite workshop attendees to practice being within the self amidst an imperfect landscape. Participants will perform their rituals twice—first within the private context of Kelly’s workshops, and then publicly for the broader Open Source audience.

Kelly’s exhibition record includes Serpentine Slacker Gallery in London, Danspace, the Bass Museum of Art, Flux Factory, and the Anchorage Museum of Art. Her work has been supported by Movement Research, the Carmago Foundation in France, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She collaborates regularly with video artist Mariam Ghani. Their series, Performed Places, has exhibited in museums and galleries in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
