The Un/Commoning Pedagogies Collective are a fully-collaborative experimental group, rising from the collective energy of seven dancer-scholars, variably positioned, who bring movement- based pedagogies into their teaching across the intersections of diverse fields: Anthropology, Sociology, Black and Africana Studies, Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, Dance, and Performance Studies. In this iteration of our working together—DANCING TOGETHER—we draw upon our emergent body-based, dance-informed, multi-disciplinary approaches to create an engaged, experimental, improvised performance. The Un/Commoning Pedagogies Collective are Dasha A. Chapman, J Dellecave, Adanna Kai Jones, Sharon Kivenko, Mario LaMothe, Lailye Weidman, and Queen Mecca Zabriskie.

Moving Otherwise examines how contemporary dance practices in Buenos Aires, Argentina enacted politics within climates of political and economic violence from the mid-1960s to the mid-2010s. Drawing on archival research, over fifty interviews with dancers and choreographers, and the author’s embodied experiences as a collaborator and performer with active groups, the book analyzes how a wide range of practices moved otherwise, including concert works, community dance initiatives, and the everyday labor that animates dance. It demonstrates how these diverse practices represent, resist, and remember violence and engender new forms of social mobilization on and off the theatrical stage.

3:00 PM: Sᴄʀᴀᴛᴄʜ Nɪɢʜᴛ – Gʀᴀᴅ Sᴛᴜᴅᴇɴᴛ Sᴀʟᴏɴ

The Grad Salon was conceived of as a place for students working in dance, dance studies, and movement-based performance to share their creative works with each other and the larger community. Current TAPS students were invited to participate as an opportunity to create some dance or movement-based performance, a place to share performance with each other, a venue to push the boundaries of theory/practice, and/or an offering to simply dance for the joy of it.
