In celebration of Zachari Logan: Remembrance, Canadian choreographer Sébastien Provencher and artists Rodney Diverlus and Drew Bathory will conduct live choreography sessions within the spaces of the museum and the Ropes Mansion Garden. The dancers will explore aspects of transformation and the healing potential of grief through gesture and movement. The workshops are open to the public and will culminate with three on-site performances that offer a new interpretation of the artist’s work.
