David Dorfman Dance and the Active Citizen: A 90-Minute Movement Workshop
Start Date: 2/12/2015Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 2/12/2015End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:

Presenter: Kate Speer ’08, University of Colorado ’14 (MFA in dance)

Speer’s overarching research question is how to create active citizens, a term that combines a sense of presence that is engaged (active) with a sense of responsibility to reciprocity within the community (citizen). This question, and the resulting theories, ideas, and solutions that spring from it, feed into her pedagogic, choreographic, and scholarly practices.

An hourlong movement class in the style of David Dorfman followed by a 30-minute discussion of his pedagogy practices will reveal Dorfman’s beliefs and values with their inherent practices of radical democracy and humanism and the political implications behind his pedagogical choices.

Roundtable discussion: Developing a Context for Action
Location Information:
*Swarthmore College - Lang Performing Arts Center
Room: LPAC Troy Dance Studio
