Social Dancing (aka Negotiation)

Research and play, dancing together, in collaboration. Shared experimental practice in the blessings and crises of social relationships. Through a range of activities we’ll negotiate fake and real healing, touching and not touching, intentional shifts in embodiment and perspective, post/contact, unity-in-difference, and objects as mediums of exchange and identity. Responding to the new fascisms and the collapse of liberal coherence we will use the workshop as a political laboratory to research new forms of social practice-prayer-magic-ritual-dancing-performance-action. We’ll explore the tensions between provocation and care in both activism and art. Keith says, “My primary teaching/research is on the politics of relationship and how dance practices can be a laboratory for new social relations based on queer-feminist-antiracist-decolonial ethics. I tend to work mostly with duet and trio scores, improvisation, and experimental ritual.”
