Dance Discourse Project 22: animal, human, posthuman

Dance Discourse Project 22: animal, human, posthuman
Mon, Mar 28, 7:30pm
CounterPulse, 80 Turk St, SF
FREE

Taxonomies have boxed in humans (and in particular certain humans) as separate and above other lives. Posthumanism & decolonization are knocking “human” off the pedestal of privilege relative to all other life forms. How do we as dance artists feel and express these myriad ways of seeing the human form? In DDP22, animal, human, posthuman, we examine and blur the lines of bodies and intelligences, individual and collective, within dance, technology and nature. As we question decaying artificial taxonomies, we find ourselves on un/familiar ground. Moderated by Christina Leyva with panelists Eddie Madril, Abby Crain, and Maurya Kerr.

The Dance Discourse Project is a far reaching, far ranging, and ambitious project that aims to articulate in a cohesive and coherent way, from the participants themselves, what is happening in contemporary dance in the Bay Area and beyond. This on-going series of artist-driven discussions is organized by Mary Armentrout and co-produced by Dancers’ Group and CounterPulse.

Waves of Movement

Award-winning choreographer Kim Epifano and professional dancers Antoine Hunter and Zahna Moss who are deaf will share how they communicate through movement and serve as role models for success in the arts.

The lecture demonstration will feature dance that integrates sign language as a source of choreography, text, and audience echoing. The dancers are part of Island City Waterways, a public art event that explores how the waterways have shaped Alameda’s unique past and present to be held May 20, 21, & 22.

Choreographers Have Coffee-East Bay Edition

Choreographers Have Coffee was spawned over in SF by Charles Slender-White and Liz Tenuto, now Kristin Damrow is bringing it to the East Bay! This come-when-you-are-free meet up is a chance for choreographers to get caffeinated and engage in conversation about ideas, struggles, discoveries, road blocks and hell yes moments we face. But most importantly this offers us a place outside the studio or theater where we can stay involved in each others work and offer support to the community.

Choreographers Have Coffee-East Bay Edition
1st and 3rd Fridays of each month
2-3pm at Arbor Cafe on 42nd & Telegraph Ave in Oakland.

Dance Discourse Project: Dreaming The Future Landscape

DDP and the FRESH Festival join forces to ask expansively, poetically and pragmatically: what can a future dance ecosystem be? DDP/FRESH invited a diverse panel of dance artist-activists, and activist policy-makers to come together to dream, envisioning a future far off-shore in order to illuminate possible realities and the actions needed to create them. Breaking down into small groups, we will consider what resources, contexts, spaces, and communities would support our individual and collective visions.

DANCE/USA Dance Forum

NOTE: THIS FREE EVENT IS IN NEW YORK, NY

Connections: Dance Touring and Performance Opportunities

The annual Dance Forum brings together a wide variety of individuals working in the dance industry to connect with peers and discuss immediate, field-wide issues.  The 2016 Dance Forum will be presented in a workshop-style convening with plenty of opportunity to dialogue with peers from across the country and internationally.

This event will include the voice of the artist, dance company manager, agent, presenter, service organization, and more.  The morning will be a dynamic combination of large and small group conversations and networking opportunities. Come explore how we can pro-actively increase performance opportunities through the relationships between multiple stakeholders that make performance opportunities possible. These relationships will be presented in small panels, or snapshots, before we break into group discussions.

During the Dance Forum, Dance/USA will give updates on upcoming programs, new research initiatives, membership, and more.  There will be coffee and time to network with your dance industry colleagues throughout the Forum.

Before the Dance Forum begins, please join Metris Arts Consulting and New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) for a share out of preliminary findings from research on the National Dance Project’s retrospective and field scan. Starting at 8am in the Trianan Ballroom, this session will include interactive opportunities for the field to “ground-truth” the preliminary findings and shape the final research. This session and the Dance Forum are free and open to the dance community; APAP registration is not required.

Traditional Arts Roundtable: How Do We Document our Experiences? Who is Telling Our Story?

Join us for this free evening of sharing the work and unique perspectives of our featured artist-activists.

Our topic will address the unique efforts we employ to capture how we tell the stories of our cultural communities. Who captures our joy as well as our difficulties? How do our perspectives feed or negate the popular images of the “other”? How does our art create the stories we want to promote and preserve? In a world of contested narratives, what can traditional artists contribute to the conversation?

Tumani Onabiyi, an Oakland treasure picked up his camera nearly four decades ago and has captured the African Diaspora experiences since that time. From the Black Arts revival of the 70’s to recent celebrations of the Oakland murals at the Malonga Center, he is a citizen-ethnographer whose sharp eye has recorded a vibrant community.

The Manila Heritage Foundation is inextricably tied to the displacement of primarily Asian/Pilipino residents of the I-Hotel in SF. How this history impacts the direction of their organization and art-making will be addressed by Caroline Cabading and CarlosZialcita.

Social media is another strong communication tool influencing narratives and is a living archive. Sonny Le, is an active proponent of media, utilizing blogging and Twitter effectively. His sharp critical eye stems from many experiences including his perspective as a boat person from Vietnam who was interviewed recently by NPR. Sonny will share with us his perspectives.
