The Environmental Performance Agency
Embodied Scientist Parkour
Environmental Performance Agency is an artist collective using social and embodied practices to advocate for the agency of all living performers co-creating our environment, specifically through the lens of spontaneous urban plants, native or migrant. EPA agents include andrea haenggi, Christopher Kennedy, Ellie Irons, Catherine Grau.
Embodied Scientist Parkour is a training for interspecies communication and deepened relationships with the in-between landscapes of the Schuylkill River. Reimagining a conventional fitness course, the project invites participants to engage in a series of site-specific movement scores situated along the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail to expand the possibility of how we collect and co-generate embodied scientific data. Find a partner to train with — entangle your bodies with wild urban plants, vibrate with the multispecies highway, and develop new forms of intimacy with the river’s edge. #embodiedscientist
