A Requiem: Imagining Movement Out Of Text

On Sunday, March 8, from 11AM until 1PM, Gowri Vijayakumar and I will lead a workshop in Zellerbach 170 on the U.C. Berkeley campus on a text that we assembled out of coroner's reports, courtroom testimony and newspaper articles pertaining to the deaths of black people - including Emmett Till, Oscar Grant and Trayvon Martin - at the hands of the police or armed vigilantes. How do we imagine movement and performance out of this horrific archive? For more details, see here.
