Lisa Wymore: New Movements

Free and open to the public; online only. Please register at https://berkeley.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_RnasAaKxQNaXj9ziRE28mQ.

Join Lisa Wymore to discover movement as a fundamental condition of human existence. As we change, so do our movements, they shift, evolve, and permutate. We encounter many of these new movement sequences and processes in dance, where new movements are intentionally developed into fuller forms. Dance also brings new technologies into context with the human body as well as with individual and group choreographies. Wymore will discuss these creations of new movements through dance history, as well as through her own performance work, with a particular focus on dance notation and motion capture.

Lisa Wymore is a Professor of Dance at UC Berkeley's Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies as well as the Faculty Director of the Arts + Design Program at UC Berkeley. Her collaborative and experimental dance works with Sheldon Miller are accessible at https://www.smithwymore.org/.
