This first shared-reading session is open to all interested in dance, theater and performance research, pedagogies, and practices.  We seek to cultivate a generative community at this and future sessions for discussions of questions such as: how do artists transform the world through performance?  how does theater shape and reshape, orient and reorient, our sense of history and human experience? how might everyday practices be viewed as performatives that contribute to the making of everyday realities?  how do dance, drama, and performance act as a lens through which to understand and investigate larger social, cultural, and political events and movements? what role do the fields of dance, theater and performance play in fostering collectivities and in shaping contestatory forms?
