However, I understand that non are who I am. There is a difference between who I am and what I do . I am a spiritual cultural worker on this human earth doing the goddesses job. With all the violence happening you have to be really creative in how you show up under the circumstances it puts you in. As a human rights activist, in my practice I use my ancestors healing tools to reclaim the creativity of the mind, body and spirit of women and girls from poverty, neglect, oppression and violence. When our health is absent the creativity that we are and our body as art form cannot manifest.” Dayanara Marte

Congrats to me! This spring I have been accepted to The Body Ecology Womanist Performance Intensive as an associate artist and I will be liberating my body as I use it in action and service of my heart. Thank you Ebony Noelle Golden founder of Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative and the Body Ecology crew and other accepted associate artists. I will be healing and creating with ten dynamic Associate Artists who span a range of practices, experience, and expertise in healing, performance, organizing, and education. They join BDAC from all over New York City, Boston, and Washington, DC. I am excited to be a part of the Body Ecology family.

While most of the intensive is specifically crafted for the Associate Artists, there will be several opportunities for the public to engage with the cohort.  Additionally, you are invited to join us at the culminating ritual on June 18 at 7 pm at Hi-Arts: A New Home for Hip Hop Arts and Urban Culture.  More information will be available here and on Body Ecology’s Facebook page.
