5/7 Dance Discourse Project

Posted by novoscene on May 7, 2008

The San Francisco arts nonprofit Counterpulse says that the mission of it’s Dance Discourse Project is “to articulate in a cohesive and coherent way, from the participants themselves, what is happening in dance in the Bay Area and beyond.”

Tonight is the 3rd installment of the series and features a discussion between choreographer Jo Kreiter, performance and Butoh artist Ledoh (pictured), local dance legend Sara Shelton Mann and rising international choreographer Miguel Gutierrez. The panel will discuss the multiple layers of the political in their work, how bodies are politicized through movement, and how activism plays a unique role in the Bay Area dance scene.

This special installment, presented at Project Artaud Theater, is co-presented by CounterPULSE, Dancers’ Group, and ODC Theater, as part of its festival “For the Record: Dancers Debate the Body Politic.”
