  • Registration is OPEN!

We make worlds with our moving, and words define our dances – like it or not.

But whose words and whose dances?

What is an appropriation in the context of gesture?

Can I dance in someone else’s story?

Does someone own my dances?

How do I own my gestures?

This MELT is a thinking-doing-reading|writing exploration of making-dancing, cultural appropriation, writing about dancing, and being alongside. Come to challenge and be challenged.


This workshop will take place at Movement Research's new home at 122 Community Center (122CC). 122CC is a fully ADA compliant facility. We're in the process of building our new floors and moving into the new space. Please consider helping us #buildthatfloor by contributing to our Indiegogo campaign here. We appreciate the support!
