How do we create the space for feedback in which artists/performers and their work is addressed properly, respectfully, and/or ethically? Can/must this space be crafted collectively? What ramifications does this have for the role of a moderator?

Additionally, how do existing systems for feedback facilitation (i.e. Critical Response Process, Fieldwork, etc.) break down when interrupted or intervened upon by supremacist ideas of aesthetics and value? Are these systems for facilitation and feedback adequate, inadequate, or beyond repair? What alternatives have been developed? How can we develop further practices of critique in dance and performance that de-center the respondent?

In this Studies Project, organized by Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal, participants André Daughtry, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Jaime Shearn Coan, Mark Travis Rivera, and Yvonne Montoya will engage in a conversation around the notion of ethics of (talking about) watching.

Studies Projects take place at Abrons Arts Center, Studio G05
Abrons Arts Center Studio G05 at 466 Grand St, New York, NY

Studio G05 is a wheelchair accessible space. We ask that all guests check in at the reception desk at 466 Grand Street. You will be directed to the accessible entrance, located on Willett Street through the outdoor garden space. Requests for reasonable accommodation should be made in advance of the workshop. Please contact Greer Dworman at g[email protected] or (212) 598-0551 (voice only).
