Panel (Un)apologetic Bodies

The keynote and panel aims to bring together speakers from different dance professions to share perspectives on non-normative bodies in dance under a normative gaze. What kind of minorities does that create? How can they maintain power and take up space within the stronghold of a mainstream dance aesthetic? How can they work and create without apologies? How can the sector become better at their role as ally, in supporting non-normative bodies to tell their stories?

Panelists: Sindri Runudde (SE) | Saša Asentić /Per.Art & Tanzerei Berlin (CS| DE) | Brian Solomon/electric moose (CA)
