Drawing on principles of 'enactive perception' as proposed by Alva Noë; Bill Shannon's concept of 'peripheral fluctuation;' and proposing some of their own practice-based theories around the ways movement and language inform and shape each other—Jess Curtis and Claire Cunningham host a three-hour practice session as an embodied warm-up to their two-day gathering (Making Sense of Each Other Symposium) addressing issues of physical diversity and performance raised in their work The Way You Look (at me) Tonight with local and international activists, artists and scholars.

Jess and Claire are also leading a MELT Workshop January 15-19, and will be presenting a work as part of American Realness January 10-13.
