In this 3-day practical workshop, conflict specialist and performing arts innovator Dana Caspersen integrates ideas and practices from the fields of both conflict studies and choreography. Participants will examine categories of choreographic decisions being made on both individual and systemic levels and consider the impact of choreographic decision-making in the creation and realization of participatory events. They will engage in a guided, hands-on process of creating sketches for new physical models of participatory events while also working to strengthen their own conflict engagement skills. Participants will come away with non-dogmatic, non-formulaic tools they can access to create concrete plans for how to handle conflicts, to bring up difficult topics, have productive conversations in tense moments, and find useful ways forward even when there are serious challenges.
