with Shane Sable

We would like to acknowledge that this event takes place on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

$5-$10 sliding scale
No one turned away for lack of funds

In this facilitated discussion, we will look at how dance has been and continues to be a politicized space. We will examine why our physical selves become political sites during performance and how to recognize and leverage your power within those spaces. You will leave the discussion with suggestions for harnessing that power to make your own statement about the public display of dancing bodies.

Please arrive early as we will start on time. Bring a notebook and pen if you like.
