Dance Innovators Series: Physical Education

August 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

performances by

TAKAHIRO YAMAMOTO, ALLIE HANKINS, LU YIM, + KEYON GASKIN

Physical Education (PE) is keyon gaskin, Allie Hankins, Takahiro Yamamoto, and Lu Yim. Co-created in 2013, PE organizes and hosts performances, reading groups, workshops, artist talks, and dance parties. Originally started in 2013 as a private reading group and discussion date over dinner and drinks, PE has curated and facilitated public programming since 2014. PE’s vision is to offer contemporary artists and audiences, as well as curious individuals, immersive modes through which to engage with artworks that center around performance and performativity. PE acknowledges and scrutinizes the perceived illegibility and messiness of the performing body, and seeks to collaboratively confront and embrace questions about it with a community.

On this night, each individual of PE will share their practice in the form of a performance presentation.
