The New Haven Pride Center is proud to commission Elm City Dance Collective to create and present :

Trans Body :
An Exploration of embodied history and corporeality through dance

Elm City Dance Collective and the Pride Center of New Haven will collaborate on a month-long process workshop with a community of Trans identified people, non-dancers and dancers a like, to explore meaning, making and movement within the context of transgender identity, history and corporeality.

The project asks, how do we embody and perform our own history? How do we tell stories about ourselves through movement? How can we express trans identity through dance?

The project participants will showcase their work, a movement piece, on Saturday, March 30th at 2:00p. Free.

We are looking for 10-15 transgender identified individuals to participate in the creation of the work and perform at the March 30th showcase. Participants will be asked to attend three exploratory rehearsals on March 10, 17, and 24 from 12:00 - 3:00p.

The project will partner with the Nasty Women Connecticut's exhibition Complicit: Erasure of the Body at Yale Divinity School.
