CWAH Dance Studies Annual Lecture/Watch Party
September 30, 2020 @ 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm
Dr. Katherine Profeta (MFA, DFA from Yale School of Drama), is a dramaturg who has worked with choreographer/visual artist Ralph Lemon for over two decades. Profeta will present excerpts of her book, Dramaturgy in Motion: At Work on Dance and Movement Performance, to discuss her dramaturgical approaches to movement and her working relationship with Lemon as part of this year’s CWAH Dance Studies Annual Lecture.
On October 6, 2020 from 7:30-9pm, Profeta will expand upon her dramaturgical processes as she moderates a Watch Party of Lemon’s multimedia work How Can You Stay in the House All Day and Not Go Anywhere? (2010). Building upon his relationship with 102-year-old former sharecropper, carpenter and gardener Walter Carter, Lemon’s production explores loss and transcendence experienced in human partnerships while shifting from turbulent physicality to restorative grace.
