In partnership with Chicago Dancemakers Forum and the NEFA’s Regional Dance Development Initiative, Gallery 400 hosts a panel discussion to investigate themes of temporality, the political charge of the body, the role of voice, process and labor, as it relates to movement. Featured panelists include Onye Ozuzu; Ginger Krebs; and Michelle Kranicke; with Ira Murfin, as moderator. 

Support for this program comes through the Regional Dance Development Initiative (RDDI), a one-time multi-year stimulus in 2015-17 for the field of dance in Chicago, in partnership with the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) and their National Dance Project (NDP). Support for NDP comes from the Logan Foundation, MacArthur, Driehaus and the Doris Duke Foundation.

This panel discussion coincides with the exhibition Embodiment Abstracted: The Influence of Yvonne Rainer. Please visit our website for more information: http://gallery400.uic.edu/exhibitions/embodiment-abstracted-the-influence-of-yvonne-rainer
