The course is hands-on, now completely online, and available to all who are interested. We will be exploring how choreographic thinking can be used in conjunction with practices and principles from the field of conflict engagement toward the creation of participatory events spanning a wide range of human activities, including live performance, as well as public interventions, dialogue, or demonstrations intended to foster social justice.
Last time I led the course, there were participants from a variety of fields, including science, medicine and social work, alongside dance practitioners. It was fascinating to see the ways that thinking in categories of choreographic decision-making was valuable to these different groups as they created new models for the interactive events in their own fields. No dance experience or physical skill required.
The course runs March 23rd-April 29th, with 2 classes per week.
There is a reduced tuition for those who register by December 1st.
More information and registration here. I'd love to see you there.
Peace and action, Dana
