MOBILIZED VOICES/M O B I V
M O B I V, founded by Artistic Leader & Organizer Dani Cole in November 2018, is a cohort of movement artists dedicated to in-process work with one another and the public spaces they share. M O B I V believes the intersections of identity, movement practice, and socio-political structure, generate ripe potentiality for re-embodying structures and mobilizing new pathways.
M O B I V welcomes creative process that bridge somatic practices informed by disability justice, movement improvisation, dialogue, and writing at the forefront of change-making causes. Their work is defined, and re-defined, together; co-determined and in opposition to capitalist modes of production and performance.
