what is a choreographic public dialogue?
Choreographic public dialogues create a ground for connection and exchange on difficult topics by relying on simple physical methods to communicate ideas, positions, beliefs and relationships.
physical methods of exchange
In a choreographic public dialogue there is no audience, only participants, and no dancing, performance or physical skill is required. Instead, participants are invited into a highly structured choreographic framework that enables participants to use physical actions like standing, sitting and walking, in counterpoint with language and sound, to consider questions and exchange experience on issues ranging from immigration to violence.
collaboration based on experience
Drawing on my expertise in conflict analysis and my forty years of experience with choreographic thinking, I collaborate with community members to create events that are tailored specifically to the needs of that community.
These projects are supported by individuals, foundations, groups and institutions in the U.S., Germany and the U.K.
