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