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.

We hope you will join us for a conversation with author Harilyn Rousso, who will discuss her latest work, Don’t Call Me Inspirational: A Disabled Feminist Talks:
Harilyn Rousso is a woman with cerebral palsy and one of the “founding mothers” of the U.S. disabled women’s movement. She has been involved in the disability rights and women’s movement for more than 25 years. Confronting disability and gender stereotypes on a daily basis-from “You’re so inspirational!” to “What a shame! Such a pretty girl!”- Harilyn, in her memoir, Don’t Call Me Inspirational, describes what it takes to overcome disability prejudice, not disability, and how to lead a wise, witty, outrageous life, disability and all.
