This Studies Project traces the legacies of dance beyond Judson Dance Theater, considering the complex web of influences and developments in the years before, during, and in the many decades since. Guest artists and audience members will discuss the apparent, residual, and invisible experiences of race and culture within experimental practices in movement in an effort to decolonize its lineages.

Participants: Ambika Raina (moderator), Miguel Gutierrez, Parijat Desai, Tara Aisha Willis, David Thomson

Ambika Raina, Concept, Co-organizer, and Moderator
J. Soto, Co-organizer, Studies Project Advisor
