516 ARTS, SHIFT I DANCE and UNM ARTS Lab are teaming up for a multi-media performance in celebration of Cross Pollination. As an expression of the cross pollination among art forms, SHIFT features live dance inspired by and integrated with projections of the Botanical Mural Project by artist Pastel from Argentina, commissioned by 516 ARTS this past spring. EKO-kinesis is the culmination of a fluid choreographic and collaborative process reflecting in the inter-connection of plants and pollinators, how they have evolved together, and their role in the future of life on planet Earth.

SHIFT I DANCE is a contemporary dance collective based in Albuquerque, co-directed by three local, female dancers and choreographers, Jacqueline García, Lisa Nevada, and Kelsey Paschich. A portion of the proceeds from EKO-kinesis benefits the SHIFT I DANCE FESTIVAL 2017 (October 17-21). 

This event is being held in conjunction with Cross Pollination, an exhibit at 516 ARTS, curated by Valerie Roybal, on view August 19 - November 11, 2017.
