DIS - Video and Performance Art ABILITIES

I'm showing a short sketch of a performance in this shared evening of work under the theme of "Disability." I'm wrestling with this reality/condition/concept/tool/societal limitation in the midst of winter, thinking about how it relates to control, desire, history, and interdependency.

Teaching: Saturday, February 28 at University Settlement

Invented (Language) Prosthetic (Choreography)

This is the tentative title of the workshop I'll be leading for the wonderful initiative, "Community of Practice" by Culturebot. I'm interested in imagining a space for performance that we can inhabit–a space where we can bring our total selves into the room. We'll experiment with how language and dance can become prosthetic tools to connect us to each other, as witnesses and collaborators. What is "doing?" What is "doing something for someone" vs. "doing something with someone?" We will explore these questions in the context of performance-making.
