Movement Research Studies Project: being a body out loud
April 7, 2015
Conceived by Ni'Ja Whitson Adebanjo, Edisa Weeks and Tara Aisha Willis
With panelists Allison Joy, Jumatatu R. Poe and Social Health Performance Club
Living in a body that shouts through the underbelly, a protested or protesting body, a black body, a body of the multitudes, a body of color, a body no one believes, a body of rage or exhaustion, a body on the ground outlined in chalk. Our current moment's choreographies and vocabularies - gestures, chants, dances, collective actions - reveal (and disrupt) practices of living. What experiences do we hold in memory and body, and how do we hold them? With reverence? Power? Performers and writers responded with those in attendance.
