The Fibers with Which We Weave: Native Artists Decolonizing Performance and Place

Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 11:00am | Speyer Hall | 184 Eldridge Street

Ticket Information

Admission is FREE - please RSVP online


Presented in Collaboration with American Realness

Gathering together womanist/queer/trans Indigenous dancemakers, multimedia artists, curators, advocates, and administrators, this dialogue investigates the range of foundational principles embedded in contemporary Native choreographies. What are the Native worldviews, aesthetic systems, and theoretical and methodological practices that decolonize movement and performance? What does it mean to work through, and reverse, the ongoing effects of colonization on our territories — our lands, bodies, and cultures? What roles can individuals and institutions in the dance world play in healing intergenerational trauma and furthering Native sovereignty? How do Native choreographers/directors/performers develop their work and cultivate relationships with diverse local audiences in ways that are respectful, iterative, and site-specific? How are artistic movements and spaces transformed by centering the art, lives, insights, and leadership of Native women and queer/trans Native peoples?
