Intentional Shift is a nomadic site-specific performance and artist focus group series that brings closure to the program NOW Hunters Point, a unique community-based activation project in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood that began in 2013 on the former PG&E Power Plant site. Featuring collaborations with local artists and community storytellers, the project will culminate on Sept 24th with a site-specific dance performance and arts installation at Hunters Point Shoreline Park. Audiences will be invited to explore how communities inhabit space, how spaces influence bodies, how design can bring communities together, and how history is held in individual and collective bodies.
Co-Directed by choreographer Kristin Damrow and spatial designer-activist, Liz Ogbu with additional support from Envelope A+D and funding from a Rainin Foundation Open Spaces grant, Intentional Shift hopes to become a living part of the community, and that collaborators, participants, and witnesses alike feel empowered to continue efforts toward activism and spatial justice.
Performance coming this September – Stay tuned for more details!
