Outdoor Performance with Meryl Zaytoun Murman & The Cedar Tree Project

As part of her 2024 McKnight International Choreographer Residency, Meryl Zaytoun Murman's Winona residency culminates in the premiere of new, site-specific, outdoor performances at Prairie Island Campground. In partnership with The Cedar Tree Project, the performance includes a cast of Winona-based dance and interdisciplinary artists, and it will embrace the beautiful natural setting along the Mississippi River banks at sunset. A performance will also be held on June 25.

You can also join Meryl on June 12 from 6-7pm at Prairie Island Campground for a guided nature walk, and 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.

Art of the Rural is grateful to collaborate with the Honoring Dakota Project, Winona County Historical Society, Engage Winona, and The Cedar Tree Project in the Spillway initiative in Winona, Minnesota, a town located along the Mississippi River in Dakota homelands.

Through support for artists, culture bearers, artisans, and storytellers –alongside the local organizations that support them – Spillway works to create conditions for engaged projects that honor diverse lived experience, deepen regional relationships, and build rural-urban networks of knowledge-sharing and exchange that will create opportunities for artists, culture bearers, and artisans to thrive and connect with new colleagues and audiences.
