Hana van der Kolk is a dancer, artist, educator, writer, counselor/coach, and facilitator of community events and spaces. They see creative body-based work as a conduit for knowing/unknowing what is here and now, for remembering intimacy at many proximities, and are committed to ritual, ceremony, and celebration in many forms as a way of life. Hana is currently based on unceded Mohican land in upstate New York/the Hudson Valley and her practice straddles art and performance, socio-political inquiry, celebration, and personal and collective restoration and transformation. It manifests as workshops, one-on-one body-based Internal Family Systems counseling and sex and gender expansion work, performances, events/curation, writing, videos, and the making of gifts, sites, and costumes. Hana has taught and performed internationally, co-facilitates FlagSSS Day and Club SPA spa, and recently completed a practice based PhD focused on queer friendship, bodies as sites of magic and multiplicity, entanglement with the more-than-human, and possibilities of dismantling cultures of supremacy with and through bodies and complex intimacy.

PLACE / TIME / PLACE, by Caitlind Brown

I’ve been getting lost in time lately, wondering if I embody the dissipated consciousness of my lost parent and grandparents. Breathing is an exercise in time-keeping that changes in relation to the outside world. This watch is a family heirloom that I broke. Are each of us our own my own time-keeping device? Does time live in the flesh-place of the body?

Caitlind r.c. Brown is an artist based in Calgary/Mohkinstsis. Her multidisciplinary work explore interspaces between entities.
