Feminism awakens the moment we take note of imbalances of power, but it does not end there; it blossoms into new ways of being. We are interested in ways of moving/dancing together that resist the teleology of self improvement, that turn to felt, bodily sensations. We’re interested in structures and practices that support politics of refusal, of unknowing, of listening, of decomposing, of yielding. This is a class that asks: “What does a feminist dance practice feel like?” The idea is not to answer the question, but rather drift in sensation, leaning into supports in order to touch the unknown, noticing and valuing places of ambiguity and ephemerality.
