Lisa Anne Kobdish is once again curating and hosting an awesome evening of screendance. Lisa has sourced some fabulous solo works to show on the BIG SCREEN, and we’ll plan for a soft (7:30-ish) ending to allow for discussion. This time, we are opening our doors to currently registered dance and somatics students (that is, those registered in any DANC or SMED class during the Fall 2021 semester). We are still waiting for the green light to open our events to the public.
All in-person attendees will be required to remain masked during the event, and we are limiting in-person attendance. Seats are socially distanced and available on a first come first served basis.”
Online Workshop: Perceiving the body: here and from here
Saturday, Jul 24 2021
10:30 AM – 12:15 PM PST

3:30 PM – 5:15 PM PST
Perceiving the body: here and from here is a workshop to dismantle a privileged and exclusionary somatic language. We acknowledge how “contemporary,” “postmodern,” and “somatics” are not “neutral” techniques, dance forms and styles, but are highly racialized and exclusionary. Instead of transcending or diluting national, ethnic, racial, and gendered differences, this practice intends to make these differences palpable and tangible by attending to our corpo-sensorial experiences. By holding collective space, we reframe hegemonic narratives through which certain bodies are perceived. We unearth the vitality of our moving bodies in realizing equitable futures, resistive collectivities, and solidarities.
