Emily Johnson and collaborators


Presented in association with Critical Path


This year’s Adhocracy residency project, Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter, is a new process-based work by Emily Johnson. Emily is a First Nations artist from the USA. Originally from Alaska and of Yup’ik descent, she is based in New York City where she is director of dance company Catalyst.

Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter offers a framework for exploring decolonial practices of embodiment, site-responsive choreographic practices and their connection to land, and the radical relationships that are created through dance making and other forms of artistic activation.

The residency is presented in partnership with choreographic research and development organisation Critical Path. Showing their research and process through ceremony, Emily will be joined by her residency collaborators, a team of South Australian and Australian artists.
