JULY 23 STILLS AND SUCCESSIONS BY MAR UNDAG AND ELLIOT KELLER
Stills and Successions is multi-media photographic installation, and durational dance/performative activation. It will be a transposition of a shorter duet we created for the stage that explored intimacy, loneliness, and togetherness during the first part of the pandemic.

His current research is centered around intimacy, connection, and embodiment as it relates to the experience of being a gay man as well as the decolonization of Jazz dance. He is deeply passionate about his work as an educator and advocates for co-creating classrooms that are inclusive, empowering, and energizing.
