Founded in 2019, BODYSONNET is a collective of contemporary dance makers and performers committed to making work in non-traditional spaces. BODYSONNET initiates projects in an array of communities that provide locals with unique and inclusive performance experiences. While the collective’s most fluent language is dance, the work also demonstrates the intersection of many mediums and enacts zero waste consciousness in an entire process. BODYSONNET is fiscally sponsored by Satellite Collective.
Community Dance Jam – May 15 and 22
Do you want to dance? Join the dancers of BODYSONNET, company in residence at Mount Sequoyah, for community dance jams this summer. The sessions will aid you to connect to your body and imagination, experience physical sensations, and exercise agility with explosive power. We invite you to enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere. The sessions are held outdoors in a COVID-safe environment and are open to all ages and bodies.

Suggested donation $10
Performances – May 29, and 30 @ 7:30 pm
New Movement at Mt. Sequoyah unifies the dancers of BODYSONNET with local composer Amos Cochran to present a new cross-disciplinary performance. The work is developed through the personal histories of the people whose lives have been shaped by Mount Sequoyah and the Ozarks. New Movement examines collective memory, how we construct and recall memories, and how it can inform our relationship with ourselves, others, and the ground on which we live.

Tickets are $15 per adult and $10 per child/senior/student
New Movement at Mt. Sequoyah is presented by Mt. Sequoyah with support from Trillium Arts.
This project is funded by Artists 360, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance with support from the Walton Family Foundation.
