LONG TABLE/DEMONSTRATING PRACTICE
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.
Demonstrating Practice 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.
