Dance and the Poetics of Fatigue

April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Featuring Ajani Brannum, Be Echo Heintzman Hope, and Ogemdi Ude

Dance and the Poetics of Fatigue is a new series that investigates how fatigue — physical, psychic, and spiritual — affects some of the most compelling aspects of dance. Drawing on poetics as the urge to give language to what feels most elusive and poetics as a method of engaging an idea, this series convenes conversation between dance practitioners whose work responds to various types of contemporary fatigue. We will pay particularly close attention to the kinds of worlds — restrictive and liberating — that condition embodiment and the embodied conditions of worldmaking for people of QTBIPOC experiences. Dance and the Poetics of Fatigue is curated and organized by Dixon Li.
