Workshops and Performance Art Festival with LEGACY FATALE
Saturday May 25th, 2019
Location: ROSEKILL Performance Art Residence
155 Binnewater Road, KINGSTON 12401, NY (near Rosendale)
Rosekill is 100 acres of privately owned rural land in Hudson Valley.
This is a family-eco friendly event made possible by the generous estate of the Rosekill Residence.
About the Festival:
“Panathenaia” was a popular festival in ancient Athens – the city dedicated to Athena, goddess of war, fertility, arts and wisdom. It included games, festive gatherings, poetry and music competitions. In the main Panatheic procession, a special robe was made by the women of Athens which was carried to the Parthenon and presented to the olive wood statue of Goddess Athena. Then the public games would begin. The whole festival would bring unity among the people.
For this year’s opening season at the Rosekill Art Residence, LEGACY FATALE presents a medley of immersive workshops in the natural estate of Rosekill followed by a public procession with games for all genders and generations. This performance happening is open to the public and kindly honors the spirit of community gathering, mythology, nature, movement and the mystique of life.
The curated series of workshops for adults and kids will combine a variety of experiences building up to our final performance led by the professional members of Legacy Fatale: Shauna Cummins (Clinical Hypnosis, Divine Feminine School), Florence Benichou (Medical Pilates Coach), Heather Duke (Waldorf Educator and Neurofeedback Therapist), Elisa Jimenez for Hunger World (Punk Fashion designer and Mystic Healer) and Coco Dolle (Founder and Creative Director of Legacy Fatale).
LEGACY FATALE is a performance art troupe directed by artist Coco Dolle, exploring historical and mystical community-driven practices through a feminist lens. The troupe has performed internationally including at The Queens Museum, Manchester Wonder Woman Festival UK and Miami Art Basel. Press publications includes ArtForum and the NY Observer.
