Event Type
Event Description

Curated by Co-MISSION Curatorial Residency artist Marcella Torres, "Ollin Yollistli: Embrace the Sacred Movement," is an immersive workshop that delves into the profound wisdom of the Mexican Nahua Indigenous tradition. This FREE event will take place Friday, June 9, from 5:30 - 7 p.m. in the El Paseo Community Garden, located at 944 West 21st Street. Participants can prepare to embark on a transformative journey as we explore the harmonious fusion of movement, breathwork, and posture techniques deeply rooted in Indigenous cosmology and its connection to the natural world.

Immerse yourself in intentional movement and alignment, guided by the sacred teachings of Ollin—the Nahua concept of cosmic movement and transformation. This workshop invites you to forge a connection with your inner self, the environment, and the cosmic forces that shape our very existence.

El Paseo Community Garden’s mission is to strengthen environmental stewardship and civic engagement while protecting equitable green space on behalf of the community.

Links Hall’s Co-MISSION Curatorial Residency program supports independent, Chicago dance curators, producers, and social practice artists in presenting new and existing performance by their communities, for their communities. In collaboration with Links Hall and a local organization in their own Chicago neighborhoods, the 2022-2023 resident curators will invite artists from their communities to present new or existing performance work at both Links Hall and a neighborhood location.
