Dana Michel discusses complex performance work Yellow Towel and its explorations of race, gender, body politics, and their intersections. With Lisa Jarrett, Artist and DePriest Visiting Professor of Art and Ethnic Studies, Portland State University.
This conversation is part of the TBA Festival Flight: Identity & the Body, which reflects a range of artists from diverse disciplines who work across dance/choreography and interdisciplinary performance to engage the embodied politics and poetics of race, ethnicity, gender, culture, and their intersections.
About TBA Conversations: A series of engaging daily discussions, lectures, and gallery talks with visiting and local artists, curators, scholars, and community leaders. TBA Conversations put artists and audiences in direct dialogue, combining live interviews with audience Q&A, to offer unique perspectives on festival performances and exhibitions. Conversations with TBA artists take place daily, 12:30-1:30 PM at PICA, unless otherwise noted. For 12:30 chats, bring a lunch and join us at noon on our rooftop deck for cold drinks, fresh air, and great company! All conversations are free and open to the public.
