Sept 26: Radical Presence: Black Study and Black Performance



Radical Presence: Black Study and Black Performance

a roundtable discussion with Daphne Brooks, Thomas DeFrantz, Malik Gaines, & Tavia Nyong’o

Thursday, September 26
7 to 9 pm

Daphne Brooks, English and African-American Studies, Princeton

Thomas DeFrantz, Dance and African & African American Studies, Duke University

Malik Gaines, Art, Hunter College

moderated by: Tavia Nyong’o, Performance Studies, New York University

This roundtable will bring together scholars from a range of disciplines, including art history, dance, theater and performance studies to dialogue on the radical potential of black performance as a scene of study. What might performance be able to do if we suspend assumptions about its proper time and location? How might artists, scholars, curators and the public find better ways of getting together for collective study and action? Can radical presence build concrete utopias? Can performance sustain the powerful feelings of love and mutuality that it so frequently evokes in the moment? This panel will explore how black study — both within and beyond the academy — might redraw the maps, and reimagine the histories, of performance art.

Department of Performance Studies
721 Broadway, 6th Floor, Room 621

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality; Department of Performance Studies; and Grey Art Gallery.
