The Propelled Animals are a collective of artists, dancers, scholars, musicians, and designers who embed innovative and provocative art in unconventional spaces. They are committed to creating work that interrogates, challenges, and attempts to dismantle the systemic “isms” of oppression. They collaborate and adapt to address the specific needs of the communities they engage. Their performances encourage efficacy of the body, resilience, and radical tenderness as strategies for self- and communal empowerment. Centered on art as social action and ritual as performance, they root their work in sound. From collaged and remixed news clips, hip-hop, gospel, rap, and Indigenous R&B tracks to recordings of bird calls, wind, and rain, sound fuels their immersive work—as an invitation and a provocation.
