From Topic to Topography: Mapping Issues through Movement

November 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The final event of Interdisciplinary Artist-in-Residence Carrie Hanson’s fall 2019 residency features an evening of experiments in dance and live music amidst the spectacular Chazen collection. Wander the museum to experience a diverse array of embodied performances at close range.

Witness a large group action that integrates Faheem Majeed’s charcoal-on-muslin memory quilt, and expresses our essential relationship to the natural world and role as steward of the Earth. The piece incorporates charcoal rubbings of multiple campus sites and seeks to acknowledge the history of the Teejop lands, including the erasure and presence of significant spaces – usually in plain sight and often unnoticed.

The event offers a mosaic of both performance styles and also the particular research interests of the course participants. Ranging from theatrical to pedestrian, and solitary to interactive, these independent movement projects reflect their shared creative process of “distilling” and “mapping” subject matter through embodiment. The works proceed from the belief that the body and movement can compellingly speak to complex and varied subjects.

This event is free and open to the public.
