  • Movement Research in Partnership with La Mama Moves!

A free panel in partnership with La Mama Moves Festival, hosted by Movement Research:

A Panel Symposium with long-table discussions over two days. The Panel Symposium includes conversations between Deniz Atli, Adham Hafez, Yoshiko Chuma, Danny Yung*, Yin Mei, and dance artists from Egypt, Romania, Syria, Turkey and the United States. Hosted by Movement Research, Secret Journey: “Stop Calling Them Dangerous" includes discussions that examine stories about oppression, marginalization, prejudice and profiling.

La MaMa’s Panel Symposium will enable artists to explore their ideas and translate them into a theatrical language that can communicate to diverse artists and members of the dance community. It is also a place where emerging artists learn from established artists and where artists from around the globe share work and ideas. To avoid the discussions from being overly prepared we will be introducing a simple and engaging structure for the panel wherein we will allow space for connection and honesty. In each panel discussion, an audience will have to suggest a topic for discussion. This way we will guarantee that the discussion is fresh.
