    Radical Research Panel – June 24, 2023

    FREE

    Luna invests in dance research as a way to advance our field. We also investigate what dance research can be, who shares it, who has access to it, and how it can be presented. Our Radical Research panel seeks to amplify the reflective rigor and depth of discourse of BIPOC dance researchers, whose perspectives are often overlooked. Come hear how four dance artist scholars are actively shaping the field of research.

    Accessibility: ASL interpretation, audio description, captioning and transcription services will be provided.

    We encourage you to register by 9am Pacific June 24th to ensure you receive the  Zoom details in a timely manner.
