Description

Location: Dance Studio, ARTS 100

Curated by UC Riverside Professor of Dance taisha paggett

Wrecking Walden: a dance, a place, a tool

An improvised durational movement composition and physical space where altered and othered bodies address how we access dance. It is a practice for the knowledges in the woods of our interiors to be honored and for the injuries to the spaces around the trees to be attended. Wrecking Walden aims to be a resource for the urgent necessities of care among us, while lifting black, brown, indigenous, queer, trans, and disabled, alterity brilliance and agency.

–-----

a dance to be with this place and its true names

for all the reverberations of how complicated it has been

for the spills of sound that come to volume

about the labor, about the contortions, about the quotidian epistemologies of enslavement to racial capitalism

and the body

in the break

in the split

in the stutter

when the landscape narratives

the ones that commemorate as in stifle, and make dead things out of living,

fall to the critical wrecking of this dance

in considering who we are

in relation to those who have always been here
