Guided Nature Walk with Meryl Zaytoun Murman

As part of her 2024 McKnight International Choreographer Residency, Thessaloniki-based choreographer Meryl Zaytoun Murman will lead a guided nature walk at Prairie Island Campground (PIC). This event connects to a series of walks, Strolling with the Seasons along Crooked Slough, facilitated by PIC Director of Operations and Programming Anne Conway. Murman will guest facilitate a somatic-informed walk. Shifting between inner and outer sensing to connect and attune with the processes of the natural world and our inner nature, she will guide participants through simple, mindful, embodied practices. The event is free and open to the public.

You can also join Meryl on June 18 at 7pm for Wayfinding, a creative conversation and informal dance film sharing featuring short films by Murman and Sharon Mansur, at the Winona Arts Center.

Meryl’s Winona residency culminates in the premiere of a new, site-specific, outdoor work at Prairie Island Campground on June 25 & 26. For more information, visit cedartreeproject.com
