Studies Project: Decolonial Design, Indigenous Choreography, and Multicorporeal Sovereignties: A womanist/Queer/Trans Indigenous Movement Dialogue

Feburary 18, 2018 This studies project is organized by Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán With panelists Rasha Abdulhadi, Anthony Aiu, Vaimoana Niumeitolu, Melissa Iakowi:he'ne' Oakes, Kaina Quenga Decolonial Design principles resonate across artistic expressions—performative, visual, tactile, acoustic, olfactory, gustatory, terrestrial—and the range of living-creature-made and naturally-occurring compositions. Embedded in each being, each Indigenous constellation of relations, larger system of systems, are organizing principles, rationales shaping their design and interaction. Articulating an interwoven Indigenous conceptualization of choreography, in which Native movement is embedded in a larger set of relations, human motion within a world of motion, this decolonial dialogue seeks to restore our cosmological context. Gathering together womanist/queer/trans Native North American, Indigenous Pacific, and Palestinian movement makers and multimedia artists, activists and community organizers,...

Studies Project: An ethics of (talking about) watching

May 8, 2018 In this Studies Project participants will engage in a conversation around the notion of (talking about) watching. How do we create the space for feedback in which artists/performers and their work is addressed properly, respectfully, and/or ethically? Can/must this space be crafted collectively? Which ramifications does this have for the role of a moderator? Additionally, how do existing systems for feedback facilitation (i.e. Critical Response Process, Fieldwork, etc.) break down when interrupted or intervened upon by supremacist ideas of aesthetics and value? Are these systems for facilitation and feedback adequate, inadequate, or beyond repair? What alternatives have been developed? How can we develop further practices of critique in dance and performance that de-center the respondent? Moderated by Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal with panelists Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Jaime Shearn Coan, André Daughtry, Yvonne Montoya, Mark Travis Rivera Studies Project is an artist-curated series...

Studies Project: Does the Dance Field Make Room for Dancer-Parents?
