RESISTANCE AND HEALING

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH COMMUNITY ACTION

Guides: Adrienne Truscott and Jules Skloot

In 2006, activist Tarana Burke originated Me Too as a slogan of empathy and solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault. More than a decade later, #MeToo has grown into a movement confronting rape culture and its manifestation across the arts and other work and social environments. Let’s dig into the impact that these developments have had on dance artists and institutions and the possibilities for justice and personal healing.

Also join us for LONG TABLE: MAR 6, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Guest Host: Yasemin Ozumerzifon
Core Participants: Adrienne Truscott, Alexandra Beller, mayfield brooks, Jules Skloot, Qurrat Ann Kadwani


LONG TABLE/CIRCLING BACK
Curated and hosted by Gibney Senior Curatorial Director, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, this series of conversations and experiential gatherings highlights important issues in the dance community.

Long Table conversations adopt performance artist Lois Weaver’s non-hierarchical Long Table format, encouraging informal conversation around topics of concern to the community.

Circling Back events are experiential gatherings, guided by dance community elders, in which artists reflect on themes and ideas from the previous Long Table while sharing wisdom, core values, and ways of living that inform their creative movement practice. Each circle—unique in format and content—will establish respectful, generous and generative space held by the guides and all who attend.
