Amsterdam-based choreographer Rob List will be teaching a non-credit Half Block class titled “Moving, Thinking, Meaning: Investigating Mind & Body in Dance & Movement Theatre”. The class will examine the question, “How can we ‘be in the moment’ while performing?”

This will be a research workshop that examines three basic issues for dancers and all those interested in movement for the stage: how to bring mind and body together in the moment of performance, how movement creates meaning, and how often-unconscious preconceptions about dance influence how we see and make performance.

  • Class dates: January 8-18, 2018. Sign up via Summit Student Life before December 21st.

CO200: Complicity and Trauma in Literature and Film.

Dictionary.com recently named “complicit” its word of the year for 2017. What is complicity? How is it measured and experienced? How is complicity related to trauma, and what does the academic field of Trauma Studies teach us about complicity? How might literature and film help us to answer these questions, reassess our understandings of these concepts, and inhabit our place in the world with a deeper sense of justice, compassion, and solidarity? Expect to discuss literary, cinematic, historical, and theoretical texts as well as to write both critically and creatively.

Yes STUPID EFFING BIRD (well can you say Fucking in a ListServe???) sort of adapted from Anton Chekhov’s classic ‘The Seagull’ by AARON POSNER – 5.00pm CORNERSTONE with Free Pizza & Pop as you read..ALL WELCOME…. “this savvy petulant blitz through The Seagull is less an adaptation of Chekhov’s landmark play than a funny, moving slugfest, a rip mash up of mock and awe…” Washington Post……..
