UW-Madison’s Natalia Zervou will present a performance titled, “What’s Left – Stories of Movement and Migration,” with Priya Srinivasan and Hannah Schwadron at the Stanford Colloquium on Dance Studies Friday, March 10.
Zervou is a lecturer with the School of Education’s Dance Department.
“What’s Left” is an international, multimedia collaboration on Skype, phone and FaceTime zoom to explore the issues around migration, involuntary movement, and what gets left behind in the process.
The performance piece involves structured improvisation, playback dance, postmodern storytelling, and audience interaction and involvement in order to pay attention to the crisis of the movement of bodies through borders. Which bodies get to move and when? Whose stories are told and how? What is left? The piece plays with different kinds of time that are imprinted on our bodies: mythological time, historical time, the present and the future.
The Stanford Colloquium on Dance brings dance scholars, practitioners, and critics to the San Francisco Bay Area to engage in thoughtful conversations about new directions in dance research. For more information about the event visit stanforddancestudies.wordpress.com.
