Seika Boye: This Living Dancer, with dancer/choreographer Natasha Powell

Wednesday March 27, 7 - 8:30

Recent AGO Artist-in-Residence Seika Boye shares a lecture that reflects on her project This Living Dancer, a self-archiving and archival simulation installation and exercise that questions her dancing life; archival practices and privacy; museum and gallery digital imaging of performance based work; and dance in the museum. Seika will also reflect on the archive of dances and learning in her own body and the lessons she took with dancer and choreographer Natasha Powell of Holla Jazz, during her residency.

The presentation will be followed by an accessible participatory lesson for audience members, taught by Natasha Powell. No prior experience required.
