Add to calendar

This session will showcase a screening of Director Sasha Klupchak’s film A Work in Progress (11 minutes) followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Kwame Phillips. The film presents a meeting of two extremes: what we usually conceive of as the physical perfection of the dancer and the perceived limitations of people with disabilities. Through an observational approach, A Work in Progress disrupts this binary by focusing on a physically integrated dance company as they collaboratively choreograph a piece. The discussion will engage the idea of film as an avenue for reimagining marginalized individuals and communities as well as the limits/possibilities of social justice work via various modes of representation.
