March 4
Evolving Dance Pedagogies
Hosted by Critical Correspondence
Maura Donohue, Simon Dove, Neil Greenberg, Patricia Hoffbauer, and Mariah Maloney.

Gibney Dance Center, 6:00 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY

This conversation between professors from a variety of university dance departments will address the changing relationship between their programs and the field of dance. Panelists will discuss the emergence of dance studies and the model of the artist/scholar; issues of access, privilege, and the shifting economic structures of professional dance. Maura Donohue (Hunter College), Simon Dove (formerly of Arizona State University), Neil Greenberg (New School), Patricia Hoffbauer (Hunter College, Princeton University) and Mariah Maloney (SUNY Brockport) consider how these conditions affect their students and the way they structure their curricula. Critical Correspondence invites you to join us for a conversation about this critical alliance between academia and the field of dance.

April 1
The Conditions of Making Work Now
Conceived by MR in partnership with 2012 AIRs Michelle Boulé and Larissa Velez-Jackson
Panelists include: Yve Laris Cohen, Walter Dundervill and Larissa Velez-Jackson

Gibney Dance Center, 6:00 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY

In an environment where resources and opportunities to show fully produced work are limited, many artists are adapting to alternative formats for the creation and presentation of their work. How do these often short-form, multidisciplinary, low tech and/or multiple iteration structures affect both how artists make work and how that work is received? How do strategies, such as concentrating on performance as a practice, or creating in modular formats or formats adaptable to site and situation, complicate our concepts of authorship, production, reproducibility and artistic longevity? What are our ideal conditions for a dance?

May 6
Vulnerable Bodies and the Embodiment of Resistance
Conceived by 2012 AIR Cristiane Bouger
Cristiane Bouger

Gibney Dance Center, 6:00 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY

Drawing from artistic practices that reveal or subvert the strenuous adversity of social control, this panel aims to address a myriad of perspectives on the embodiment of political resistance. Artists and scholars will address works and practices that were informed or influenced by the experience of undergoing the restrictions imposed by dictatorial regimes in the Middle East, South America and Eastern Europe. By approaching culturally diverse and unrelated geopolitical contexts, the event aims to give visibility to the bodies and interstices of experience that are not immediately seen by the foreign gaze.
