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.
