The Color Guard (Flag Core)

 

The Color Guard is a project lead by Dana Carter and Kate Sheehy (in collaboration w/ various musicians.) Through a series of sewing and dance workshops we develop 30 flags and choreograph dance gestures to be preformed by a collective group of bodies in motion, in public, during direct action to guard the ideas that we believe in!  First events pictured here include rehearsal at Union Square Park and a takeover of  Michigan Avenue, Magnificent Mile, Chicago.
