Where fierce femininity and intergenerational dance meet: ‘O my soul’

O My Soul is a vigorous dance project weaving together an intergenerational cast of feminine bodies with a lifetime of raw and real sensations, grounded in the company’s signature aesthetic of strong and fiercely feminine dance. The 1-hour dance work interconnects compelling solos, duets, and dynamic group performances with intriguing interactive props and memorable sound scores. The title of the project, O my soul, echoes a biblical phrase often sought in times of trial. Step into a captivating journey through the raw and profound emotions of a lifetime with O my soul, a one-of-a-kind dance project featuring a diverse cast of women aged 16-70’s.

After two years of artistic culmination, O my soul emerges as the company’s first ever full-length evening performance in Montclair, NJ, home of Artistic Director Norton since 2013.

Made possible by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Shapes of Movement with Rena Priest on Lummi Island (WA)
September 18-25, 2023

Public Sharing:
Sunday, September 24th 1PM
Sunset Beach, Lummi Island, WA
(Use The Willows Parking lot)
2579 West Shore Dr, Lummi Island, WA 98262

Taking place on the shoreline of the Salish Sea, we are honored to partner with WA State Poet Laureate Rena Priest, member of the Lummi Nation who will contribute spoken word to the work. Shapes of Movement is a multi-year project that explores our interdependent relationship with Nature through choreography, sculpture, and weaving. With an installation made up of a modular metal structure and compositions of handwoven textiles, two dancers activate the space within and around the structure creating relationships between each other, the weavings, and Nature.

Partnerships are key at every site, both in the Arts as well as in other disciplines to deepen our connection to Place and Nature. Earth Law Center (ELC), international leader in the Rights of Nature Movement will share video documentation of our Lummi Island project on their website.

Our time in Lummi Island includes research, workshopping, and performance Sharings with students from a local school and the general public.

Our team includes Erin Carlisle Norton, NYC/NJ-based choreographer and Artistic Director of  The Moving Architects; company dancers Kelly Guerrero, NJ and Emily Cicio, NYC; Crystal Gregory, sculptor and Associate Professor of Fiber Arts at University of Kentucky; Kathy Imlay, bi-coastal Curator and Producer; gwen charles, NYC/NJ-based multimedia artist
and arts educator.
