Dance/Text Collaborations

Dance and writing would seem, on first glance, to hail from very different worlds of thought and feeling – the one spatial and immanent, the other lexical and more permanent. Indeed, there is a temptation to distinguish the two practices according to all-too familiar antinomies: body versus mind, gesture versus word, ephemeral versus archival. And yet, like those cognitive pairs, dancers and poets share many overlapping concerns as well as a rich history of collaboration. This panel will seek out the intimacies between writing and dance, both historically and in current practice. Longtime collaborators dancer K.J. Holmes and poet Julie Carr will screen a series of videos documenting pivotal dance-text collaborations from the mid-seventies through the present, among artists such as Anne Carson, Rashaun Mitchell, Silas Riener, Miguel Gutierrez, Sarah Shelton Mann, Michael Palmer, Margaret Jenkins, Ralph Lemon, Lisa Nelson, and Steve Paxton. After their presentation, Holmes and Carr will perform a new work and discuss their collaborations across dance and writing
