Whether we are aware or not, we form temporary communities all the time, when we are eating, shopping, waiting somewhere or walking on city street. Rachel Repinz has been focusing on the idea of temporary communities in her work, developing improvisation and performance structures with the help of easily available technology. In this workshop she shares this process that has been successful with teens to adults, in informal and professional settings, to mine this communal wellspring.

Questioning Ableism in Dance Teaching Practices with Bailey Anderson

February 9, 2020 - 1:00pm
Teaser:

Join Dance TAG for a workshop on ableism in dance. We will explore the implications of the social model of disability through a dance class containing improvisation, choreography, movement scores, and conversation. A social model of disability invites us to reflect on how social relationships and environments (like architecture) create ideas about disability, stigma, and norms. We will consider rigor, accessibility, cueing, forgetfulness, and interdependence.
