Moderated and organized by Hadar Ahuvia and Ali Rosa-Salas
Citation and adaptation have been fertile and even groundbreaking creative processes. Cultural appropriations have also masked power dynamics and violent processes of dispossession. How are performance makers navigating citational and appropriative processes with intention and within a range of proximities and intimacies with their sources? How do these artistic practices contend with and complicate colonial and extractive procedures?
With Yoshiko Chuma, Malik Gaines & Alexandro Segade, Will Rawls, Rosy Simas, and Reggie Wilson

Movement Research's editors create a temporary "publication": a live site igniting conversation, debate and language around the current moment. Faced with extreme conservatism, how will New York City dance/performance people activate their power, access, resources and social missions? Questions will be posed and answered within a time limit. Categories include: culture in the current political climate; gossip; equity; formulating a new avant-garde in a socially responsible way. GAME SHOW!
Gameshow players: Lydia Bell, Siobhan Burke, Jaime Shearn Coan, Yve Laris Cohen, Benjamin Akio Kimitch, Esther Neff, Ali Rosa-Salas, DeeArah Wright

A panel discussion moderated by Kay Takeda, Director of Grants & Services at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Since the development of the Dancers Compact from 1996 to 2002, multiple efforts have been undertaken in the field to better understand, support, and advocate for the needs of dance artists, and for the importance of self-care. This is an essential and ongoing issue for each dance artist and for the field as a whole. What are the approaches and practices that makers and dancers are developing to better sustain themselves and their collaborators, and what resources are out there for dance artists in NYC? Hear from artists Aaron Mattocks, Katy Pyle, Juliana May, and Antonio Ramos, who are each actively pursuing different ways to address these questions – and add your own experiences, ideas, and practices to the mix.
