Choreographing Equity/Staging Social Justice  – Ananya Chatterjea
What might we learn from a practice of dancing mindfully with strangers, filling spaces with intentional presence, and pressing past limits imposed on us by ourselves and by others? How can we channel current social movements for justice to create a choreographic practice of #occupydance? This participatory workshop explores movement and text-based strategies to imagine and embody what justice might look and feel like. Participants need not be trained in movement. Persons of all abilities welcome!
