Collective Settlement is a gathering of friends making movement-based art together. Domestic rituals inspire choreographies and installations intended to connect viewers to their own visceral wilderness. Recent projects explore the felt experience of language and its connection to movement and gesture. We are Felicia Ballos, Jean Brennan, Elizabeth Castagna. Each member shifts between videographer, dancer, set designer, director.
