Faculty Lecture: Amy Chavasse, dance

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

6:00pm, East Quadrangle, Room 1405

 

Professor Chavasse presents research from her travels to the Malta Festival in Poznan, Poland, and to Berlin, Germany where she created a new dance work for Tanz Tangente. In Poznan, the panoply of dance, music and theater events focused on the festival theme--The Balkans Platform, (Platforma Blakany), with
the title of "We The People," analogous to our "not my president" protests. Chavasse will discuss the highly politicized works she witnessed as an audience member, posing questions about gender politics and social inequality and autocracy. She will also discuss the genesis of a new dance created with Tanz
Tangente in Berlin, called "Little Monsters,” in which the movement exploration is centered around pulsing, agitation, manipulation and absence.
