UNDER|STAND Final Event
A Choreographic Public Dialogue on Racism
Hosted by Dana Casperson & SCDT
Saturday, April 29th
Free and open to all
You are invited to be in a collaborative, creative, embodied process
bringing communities together to open dialogues about
Race issues in our personal lives and in our culture.
UNDER|STAND is an action dialogue on racism—an ongoing opportunity for local communities to connect, reflect, and exchange, using simple forms of motion like walking, listening, tapping, mirroring, and speaking. The project has recently been realized in New York City and Los Angeles, and will next take place in Berlin, Germany. But first it is right here in the Pioneer Valley!
This event is FREE and OPEN TO ALL, and will be followed by shared food and drink and more conversation. We invite you to join our diverse group in bringing this project to life by lending your voice, experience, and spirit!
Interacting with so many people helped me realize that I am not alone with these topics.
As a black man...for me, this was golden. Dana has created an unprescribed space for tough conversations...this is crucial to remedying the concept of race.
It feels like an engine has been started.
