Ecologies Of and Through the Body
April 22-29, 2021

This year we have experienced the world in the midst of a global pandemic as well as widespread civil unrest due to social and racial injustice. Earth Day (April 22, 2021) and World Dance Day (April 29, 2021) bookend our virtual conference this year and provide a fitting backdrop for considering the relationship of our various environments and the effects we have on one another as a global system. As a discipline, ecology asks people to investigate and explore the connections of organisms to each other as well as the physical surroundings. With this in mind, how might dance practice, dance works, and dance education function to enact or elicit relationships within or across ecosystems? How might the human body be a metaphor for the earth in crisis? In what ways does your work consider ecologies of and through the body?
