Hide surroundings Show surroundings

On March 11, 2016, as part of Danspace Project's PLATFORM 2016 at St. Mark's Church, scholars and artists gathered to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster with a Conversation Without Walls. How are we challenged by mounting human failures? How does being a mover affect our thoughts and sensitivity? And how do our memories affect our movement? How do choreographers concern themselves with changing environments, artistically, politically and socially?
