Full Radius workshop description: 10-11:30AM

 

Almost all professional dance training assumes a set of norms, paradigms, and aesthetics applicable only to people without disabilities. Full Radius Dance has created a methodology of rigorous dance training that serves both dancers with and without disabilities. Join us for a participatory workshop as we dive into the Full Radius Dance technique. We'll discuss the intent of the movement, what muscle groups are used, and will readily demonstrate how it can be executed by different embodiments - seated on the floor, seated in a chair, or standing. This workshop is welcoming of all bodies.

Victoria Mark’s composition dance making workshop: 12 – 2PM

Choreography happens. But what happens before that, in the room, before “the making” happens? Marks will explore “choreo-portraiture” and some of the processes that inform the new work for Karen Peterson and Dancers.

Victoria Mark’s Round Table Discussion 2:30-4PM facilitate by

Cameron Basden

 

"Why Disability Culture Matters” (Can disability culture serve as a force for greater

social change?)

 

Narrated by Miami Dance Hub Founder, Cameron Basden with Victoria

Marks, Karen Peterson and Douglas Scott

Victoria Marks, “I want to consider how rethinking disability, particularly in relationship to ableism can shift paradigms for non-disabled people as well. Some examples: We are all in a process of aging and decay, yet many of us labor under the illusion that we will get better, thinner, smarter, etc. The future looms bright. We are constantly bombarded by visions and fantasies of perfect happy and beautiful people. Our aspirations and dreams are socially constructed and marketed. Can appreciating real bodies, and our human diversity shift our values? Can it bring us more into the present rather than yearning for an illusory future? Might disability teach us to cherish the beauty that is all around us, close by, and hiding in full view? Can we learn to court possibility, rather than loss? Is the value of a person determined by what a person produces? Might disability invite us to think differently about each of our human value?”

A RECEPTION CATERED BY LOVABLES WILL WRAP UP THE

FESTIVAL AND CONFERFENCE AT
