TRANSMISSION is a site adaptive work centered on art as social action and ritual as performance. Through kinesthetic, sonic, visual, and aural experiences the collective, Propelled Animals, offers a restorative space to counter traumas inflicted by systemic injustice. Propelled Animals is a collective of artists, dancers, scholars, musicians, and designers, bringing communities together for performances that honor nature, foreground radical tenderness, and deliver strategies for self-empowerment. Propelled Animals creative team includes: Esther Baker-Tarpaga (Philadelphia), Barber (Detroit), Heidi Wiren Bartlett (Pittsburgh), Papa Djiga (Ouagadougou), Dr. Courtney Jones (Boca Raton), and Dr. Raquel Monroe (Chicago).
