About the EPA
The Environmental Performance Agency (EPA) is an artist collective founded in 2017 and named in response to the proposed defunding of the U.S. Environmental Protection . Our aim is to shift thinking around the terms environment, performance, and agency – using artistic, social, and embodied / kinesthetic practices to advocate for the agency of all living performers co-creating our environment, specifically through the lens of spontaneous urban plants, native or migrant. The current collective includes andrea haenggi, Catherine Grau, Christopher Kennedy, Ellie Irons and the spontaneous urban plants of 1067 Pacific Street, Brooklyn. http://www.environmentalperformanceagency.com/
