Dance Discourse Project

View Events by day

The Dance Discourse Project is a far reaching, far ranging, ambitious project that aims to articulate in a cohesive and coherent way, from the participants themselves, what is happening in dance in the Bay Area and beyond.  Topics of discussion have included site-specific dance, performance and technology, dance criticism, post-multiculturalism, and dancing politics, among others. Begun in 2007, The Dance Discourse Project is an on-going series that takes place roughly three times a year.

Check back for details on the next discussion.
