Event: Impasse: Authoring Marginalized Bodies/Rethinking Integrated Dance

Spring 2014 lecture Series: Impasse: Authoring Marginalized Bodies/Rethinking “Integrated” Dance

By Catherine Long and Doran George

Monday, April 28th, 6:30PM,
Kaufman Hall Room 200

Impasse is the reformula.on for dancer Catherine Long of the
mul.media solo Stalemate originally choreographed and performed by
Doran George in 2009. By exploring how the movement component of
the work manifests on their bodies, George and Long deconstruct the
binary of capacity and incapacity that powerfully informs concert dance.
Impasse explores performa.ve and theore.cal implica.ons of how
bodies generally and Long and George specifically are configured
differently within ideas of dis/ability.

The performance will be followed by a talk with both arists.
