REMEMBERING L. TARIN CHAPLIN
Dancer, Choreographer, Author, and Community Activist
Describing herself as an "eco-choreographer," Ms. Chaplin sought to "connect people to the earth, the elements, and the sentient and non-sentient beings that share this universe". She created or contributed to many community events, exploring ritual and the environment including Nightfires, Marrowbone, Ice on Fire/Fire on Ice, Labrynthian, Celebrate the Winooski, and Haymakers.

For now, I have put together what I will call snapshot memories - photos that have been holding space in my mind as I have been working on the book collection for Kellogg-Hubbard Library. More to come.
