Somatic Partnering is a bodily technique to bring deep attention to language, health, and care within and between participants. This program features artist-in-residence Ilya Vidrin in conversation with three figures whose work and research are critical to their project: Bonnie Wong, director of the Neuropsychology Program in the Frontotemporal Disorders Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital; Mario Alberto Zambrano, Associate Director of Dance at The Juilliard School; and Çaca Yvaire, the Terran Shield and Community Conservation Co-Director for the Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust (NEFOC). To open the conversation, Vidrin will offer a participatory performance exercise informed by his Somatic Partnering curriculum and created with collaborators during his New Museum residency.
This program will be presented onsite in the New Museum theater. All attendees are required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Guest speakers may be un-masked and will be socially distanced from the audience while speaking onstage. Review the New Museum’s COVID guidelines in advance of your visit.
