Topic for November 4th discourse: A continuation of Abuse of Power in Arts Leadership:
In light of the #metoo movement and articles such as this one https://www.dancemagazine.com/metoo-dance-2569127206.html the October 7th discourse looks at the responsibility of leaders in the arts and the abuse of power that is all too common, especially in dance spaces. While the conversation at large is mostly, framed by sexual misconduct and abuse, and rightfully so, other forms of abuse are often at play. What do we do when leaders (artists, choreographers, directors, coaches, etc.) use shame, fear tactics, and psychological manipulation to achieve artistic goals? Do contracts cover all types of consent in the studio? What if the job doesn’t include a contract? How do we navigate abusive situations when we believe in the overall message of the work/organization/company? Are educators perpetuating this culture in the classroom, teaching students to always seek approval and to acquiesce to the person in the front of
These questions, among others generated at the session, will be starting points. Our goal is to propel the
group into a space where discourse around the subject opens up pathways for information to flow freely. We will seek dialogue instead of answers.
•At the end of the session the attendees will select a topic for the next month’s discourse.

Artists Ana Maria Lucaciu and Fly on a Wall's Nathan Griswold are in the midst of creating a dance-theater work exposing the underlying elements of our simpler, more human, and sometimes ridiculous sides. The working title of the piece is "OUTO", which translates to "strange" in Finnish. The work consists of two artists using highly physical dance, clowning, and theatrical tools. They will use these methods to overcome various physical, emotional, and spatial obstacles. The piece is a work in progress and the material created so far has been done with residencies at Metro Parks Nashville and Kaatsbaan International Dance Center. A premiere the preliminary version of the piece is scheduled for October 2018 at the International theater festival in Bucharest, Romania.
When: Tuesday, June 19th at 7:30pm
