POSTPONED P. Megan Andrews: Field | Practice | Context #3

This event has been postponed.

A conversation series facilitated by P. Megan Andrews

re/engaging differently: considering our ethics of practice in creative process and performance.

How are you practicing? What are the forces and relations that activate your practice? What frames reveal or conceal it? How do shifting contexts both collapse and expand possibility? Where do you perceive the open spaces and edges of the field?

As part of the disorientation project, Dance Centre Associate Artist and scholar P. Megan Andrews invites participants to an experimental series of conversations to explore these questions in relation to various themes together with invited guests. Listen and/or contribute as you choose.

Via Zoom: to register, RSVP to programming@thedancecentre.ca no later than 1pm PST on the day of the event.

  • Friday June 26, 2020 | 2pm – 4pm PST

Dear friends and colleagues:

I’m writing to let you know that Field | Practice | Context #3: re/engaging differently: considering our ethics of practice in creative process and performance, originally scheduled for Friday, June 26th, will be postponed.

I’ve been doing some critical self-reflection on many fronts and I recognize that in the current context, I don’t have the skills to effectively and safely facilitate this conversation at this time.

YES, we need to have this conversation – many conversations. And we will.

For now, I need to step back, rethink and reconfigure how. I don’t want to be setting up a circumstance that could be harmful to folks and I feel it’s my responsibility to recognize my own limitations and make the decision to postpone.

I’ve made this decision in consultation with my guests and am doing my best to honour their engagement in the project thus far.

I remain committed to this work and will keep you informed.

With respect and gratitude,

Megan
