Erin Fussell: Dance in the Face of Various Deaths


July-August, 2013 Residency

Dance in the Face of Various Deaths is open to the public Monday-Friday from 12-4pm or by appointment.

At Willamette Cultural Resources
623 SE Mill St, Portland 97214
Free admission.

How do we stay alive in the face of so much death around us: death of landscape, death of spirit, death of justice? Not just scientifically alive, but pulsing with life, exuberant, transcendent? Dance symbolizes that pulsing life, that resurrection. We dance in the face of various deaths because death signifies an end and an end signifies a beginning

As an artist in residence, I will be in conversation with Portland American Indians at NAYA on contemporary native dance, working in the Willamette Cultural Resources Associates office with archaeologists and doing research. I will make video art in response to what I learn in combination with these ideas and host a presentation veiwing at the end of the residency. 

Dance in the Face of Various Deaths is made possible through the support of CoCA Seattle and Willamette Cultural Resources.
