The International Human Rights Art Festival is thrilled to announce its 2018 Festival, co-produced by and held at the Wild Project, from November 12-18, 2018. The Festival will comprise 30 events and 100+ artists, presenting advocacy performances and art which bring together beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement to open a space for healing, discussion and social change.
Mare Nostrum Elements (dance/workshop; 90 minutes)
participation in the festival will include a live class demonstration of our teaching method (The Wave Within) followed by a performance of Altering, a dance work created by choreographer Patrick O’Brien during ECS 2018. Mare Nostrum Elements directors Kevin Albert and Nicola Iervasi will lead a participatory class following their signature Movement Theater method The Wave Within. The class will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. Altering premiered at MNE’s Emerging Choreographer Series in February 2018 and was inspired by the Me Too movement.
Mare Nostrum Elements is an organization dedicated to the expression of human emotion through dance, theater, and movement that carries out its work through a performance group (MNE creates), training outlet (The Wave Within!), and production company (MNE presents). Since 2001, Mare Nostrum Elements has explored the points of intersection among artistic disciplines and has shared the results through performances, workshops, and outreach programs. www.mnelements.org
