Primary Instructor:

This class will explore the ways we can make arguments, tell stories, and test ideas through movement in space as well as through words written on a page or spoken aloud. We will enter this process through the thematic frame of how arts—and movement arts, such as dance, in particular—engage with and enact social justice. To that end, we will read texts in a variety of genres and media that consider this relationship; we will attend two UMS dance performances at the Power Center by the Urban Bush Women and Company Wang Ramirez, both of which engage social issues in unique ways; and we will be joined in the first part of the semester by Detroit-based dancer and dance-maker Jennifer Harge—whose work takes on themes of race, gender, memory, and loss—as artist-in-residence and co-teacher of the course. Our writing this semester will consist of reflections, interpretations, analyses, and arguments created both in words and in movement. We will be moving almost every class, in short improvised and composed responses to prompts of various kinds, and we will create longer compositions to share at the end of the semester. The class will meet both in a Lloyd Hall classroom and in the Lloyd Hall dance studio. No prior dance experience is necessary to succeed in this class—just a willingness to move and to experiment with new compositional modes and media!
