The Dancing Circle: Opportunities for Connection, Community and Creation

Tuesday, February 11 | 7:30 PM

Annelise Mertz Dance Studio

This lecture/demonstration will explore the possibilities of the “dancing circle," and how the people participating, with their embodied histories and stories, can create community and connection across differences. Using Anthony’s solo 90 minutes and compositional and improvisational studies performed by WashU dancers, we will collectively consider the role of the body in telling our stories, building connection and imagining and practicing ways of being with ourselves and with each other.
