The Seldoms, Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead.

I am participating this evening—Friday, 26 October—in a roundtable after the performance of The Seldoms’ Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead at the Columbia College Dance Center.

The piece, choreographed by Seldoms director Carrie Hanson, explores the fraught public debate over climate change and stakes a claim, as Hanson’s previous pieces such as Stupormarket do, that dance theater and gestural language have an important contribution to make in dramatizing and clarifying these confusing political and cultural interactions.
