How the persian carpet moves you: a historical, cultural, political, and artistic look into the persian carpet as an entry to investigate home-made movements and to explore improvisatory and choreographic patterns through researching our connection to this globalized object.
The activities include lecture, discussion, writing, and moving, with moving taking most of the time.
Notes: No background in dance is necessary but an interest in movement improvisation is essential. Using a persian carpet is highly encouraged!
