Performance Talk by Alice Sheppard Thursday August 18 from Noon-2pm

Edmonton, join us at Alice Sheppard's performance-talk on Race, Disability and Dance this Thursday (August 18th) 12-2pm at the Arts-Based Research Studio (4-104 Education North, University of Alberta)!!"In this part talk/part performance event, Alice Sheppard engages questions of embodiment, aesthetics, and virtuosity through the lenses of disability, race, and gender. For Sheppard, a black, queer disabled dancer, race and disability are not just a subject matter around which art can be made; they are the generative and creative forces in her choreographic and performance work."20 second video below shows Alice Sheppard rehearsing at the ABR studio, dancing with chair and crutches.https://vimeo.com/178997879See More

A Note From Alice Sheppard After the First Week of her Residency

It’s Friday morning.  And I am both refreshed and drained.  Refreshed because I slept really well last night.  Drained because I am involved in a process in which people have committed their everything.  Such total dedication and openness is utterly compelling: I’m drawn in.  I want to honour their commitment to the best of my abilities.  So, yes.  I, too, am committing everything I have and know to the process.  The learnings flow back richly, complexly, terrifyingly, and beautifully.  That’s all right.  This is everything I could have hoped for. I am at *that* stage of the process--the one where the cares of the outside life fade away.  I woke up and counted my clean clothes.  I have just enough to make it to laundry day.  I check the fridge in my ever so comfortable hotel room: I have enough food, and nothing has gone rotten.  I check my washbag: yes, there is enough toothpaste and deodorant.  But I do seem to be running low on hair stuffs.  It seems as if I will have to leave the…See More

A Dancer's Perspective - Danielle's Take on Day 4 of the Alice Sheppard Intensive

ClumpThe best creative processes inevitably leave me in knots.It is day four of this creative intensive with Alice Sheppard, and we are upstage in one large human knot. My wheelchair is bound by the weight of four bodies for just a moment, before I shake them off with a sharp spin. They scatter, and Imove away: my arms trying hard to embody the deep beauty and meaning of the choreography Alice has created for me. I find myself pulled into another kind of knot. Alice has done her homework. She has watched CRIPSiE’s archive. She has seen video after video of me carving space with my hands firmly and safely on my wheels. I have consented to being pushed beyond my…See More

A note from Alice Sheppard on our first day of her ABR residency

Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE. I’m sort of stunned.Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE, and it’s clear that we are on a journey to, well, I don’t know where. And I am happy for that to be the case.I’m Alice, and I am here for two weeks to create a piece with CRIPSiE. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while. When I read about CRIPSiE on the web, I was immediately drawn to their stated commitment to crip and mad art: “Crip and mad aesthetics involve celebrating and exploring the generative possibilities of 'disability' and 'mental illness,' in terms of how these experiences can offer important alternative perspectives on art processes, form, and content.” Yes. YES! I want this and yes, I believe in this. So, it was with a sense of honour, privilege and more than a little anxiety that I rolled up to the University of Alberta campus and entered the studio. Who were these people? Could I create a piece that would live in…See More

Visual data/comprehension

Posted by AR Woollock on August 14, 2016 at 2:39am 0 Comments

Another illustration. This one shows how my use of e-ma gives rise to three kinds of data/understanding, which move from a surface understanding (readerly) through a more comprehensive understanding based on contextual knowledge of the painted e-ma, through to semi-fictional narrative (writerly) data. Workshops can be 'tweaked' towards eliciting the type of data the researcher is seeking to explore.

E-ma and oral data

Posted by AR Woollock on August 14, 2016 at 2:36am 0 Comments

An illustration to show how my use of e-ma gives rise to four potential sources of oral data: monologue: discursive: focus group: ethereal
