Delicious Movement: Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty
DANC 244
Fall 2023
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CEAS 244

This course contemplates metaphorical nakedness and human and bodily experiences of time and space through interdisciplinary discourse. Taught by NYC-based artist Eiko Otake, students will examine how being or becoming a mover reflects and alters each person's relationships with the environment, with history, and with other beings. Topics of study and discussion include atomic bomb literature, postwar Japan, and environmental violence such as Fukushima nuclear explosions. A key concept of study will be metaphorical nakedness and how distance is malleable. Please note that homework load is heavy and journals are due every week.
