Talking Dance: Hacking the Anthropocene

20 January at Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, 3pm.

How does dance help us think about the future? Critical Path in partnership with MAAS invite five choreographers and five specialists from other disciplines to respond to the idea of the Anthropocene, the human era of impact on the earth. Together they explore new ways to live in the world over a week-long laboratory – hear what they have to say before and after the collaboration.

To kick off the week, please join us for a conversation with Dr Astrida Neimanis (Dept Gender and Cultural Studies, Uni Syd) and Kenneth McLeod (Research associate, UTS Business School) facilitated by independent artist and scholar Dr Rebecca Conroy. We will be exploring what the Anthropocene means, for humans and non-humans, and how these terms are being contested and remade alongside new approaches for thinking about deep time and geological scales that decentre ‘man’ in a posthuman world.
