Movement Research Studies Project, "Dance and Labor"
April 29, 2015
Organized in dialogue with Movement Research, luciana achugar, Abigail Levine and Kathy Westwater
With panelists David Thomson and Yve Laris Cohen
How is dance labor valued? How has it been valued? How might it be? And how can we affect the value assigned to this labor? These questions were considered across a spectrum of contexts, including individual and institutional, organized and spontaneous, and historical and anecdotal to explore how performance and dance function within our current artistic, economic and labor realities.
