This inclusive, integrated dance workshop with award-winning critical disability scholars and artists, Lindsay Eales and Dr. Danielle Peers, will extend and ground ongoing discussions about access and mobility that structure the 2017 Performance Studies (Canada) Speaker Series, organized by the Graduate Program in Theatre & Performance Studies. Eales and Peers invite participants to move their bodies into creative infrastructures of support, collaborations, cooperation, and care using a variety of physical and aesthetic tools – from wheelchairs to inclusive choreographic “scores”. Open to the public, the workshop sources and develops embodied answers to questions of inclusion and diversity.
