On Display Workshop
With Heidi Latsky

On behalf of Dean Allyson Green, students, faculty, and staff are invited to join a workshop with Heidi Latsky Dance to learn about the company's ON DISPLAY. Participants will be invited to perform the installation in the lobby of 721 Broadway on December 1st and/or 2nd (details provided upon RSVP). RSVP is required. The workshop is limited to 35 participants on a first come, first served basis. No formal dance experience is required and widespread diversity is welcomed.

ON DISPLAY is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion installation, a commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image. Members of the disability, performance, and fashion worlds are often stared at and objectified in their daily lives so art and fashion function here as the installation’s framework. ON DISPLAY is a structured improvisation movement piece designed to be performed by diverse people. Presented in an open and free space, the installation allows performers and the public alike to fully witness each other. Here the viewer is as much on display as the viewed. This is a platform to experience and broadcast difference; to elevate and celebrate it within a clear context.
