Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition is part-workshop, part-conference, part-crit session, part-master class, part-experiment, part-chance composition. It is also part of the Blackwood Gallery’s 2016–2017 exhibition program which animates questions of choreography and sets out to mobilize another set of terms: counterproductivity, co-immunity, choreopolitics, and care.
Performed across the UTM campus, Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition takes aim at the multiple connections between art and globalization and asks how we might think about the relation between choreography and politics today without repeating neoliberal demands and constraints. Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition will become a rehearsal space for possible ways of entering the social and of positioning oneself with others.
ALL ARE WELCOME. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
General Registration: $50 (full conference)
One-Day Registration: $15 (Friday), $25 (Saturday or Sunday)
Includes lunch and transport from downtown Toronto
