The Jackman Humanities Program for the Arts presents

Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition

September 16 - 18, 2016

University of Toronto Mississauga (Various locations across campus)

Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition is part-workshop, part-conference, part-crit session, part-master class, part-experiment, part-chance composition. It is also part of the Blackwood Gallery's 2016-2017 exhibition program which animates questions of choreography and sets out to mobilize another set of terms: counterproductivity, co-immunity, choreopolitics, and care.

This fourth edition of Running with Concepts traces choreography across individual bodies and the systems that distribute and contain them. Presenters will address choreography's entanglements with capitalism, power, the global economy, healthcare, pedagogy, collectivism, technology, cartography, and art-making. The conference will play host to performances, processions, demonstrations, workshops, screenings, lectures, interviews, and conversations to open multiple perspectives on the ramifications of the choreographic in the 21st century, including:

The choreography of labour
The circulation of stuff
The capture and control of bodies
The pace of capitalism
The enclosure of territories
The rearrangement of matter
The choreography of fabrication
The imperative to participate
The sharing economy
The choreography of exhibitions
The crisis of care
The potential of rehearsal

Performed across the UTM campus, Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition takes aim at the multiple connections between art and globalization and asks how we might think about the relation between choreography and politics today without repeating neoliberal demands and constraints? Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition will become a rehearsal space for possible ways of entering the social and of positioning oneself with others.

General Registration: $50 (full conference)
One-Day Registration: $15 (Friday), $25 (Saturday or Sunday)
