Description

Please join us for the winter The Black Embodiments Studio talk with choreographer Will Rawls.

Focusing on his recent and current works in stop-motion animation, Rawls will share thoughts on movement, stillness, and disjunctive time in the process of choreographing cinema. Further concerns are how genre, fantasy, and DIY play provide useful frictions in representations of performing bodies.

Will Rawls, based in Brooklyn, NY, is a choreographer working in multiple time-based media. His work has appeared at the MoMA and MoMA PS1; MCA, Chicago; Danspace Project; New Museum of Contemporary Art; Issue Project Room; Portland Institute for Contemporary Art; Walker Arts Center. At Danspace Project, he co-curated Lost and Found, comprised of performances and artist projects focused on the intergenerational impact of HIV/AIDS on dancers, women, and people of color. His writing has been published by Artforum International, the Hammer Museum, the Museum of Modern Art. He is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Robert Rauschenberg Residency and a Foundation for Contemporary Arts grant. He teaches and lectures widely in university, community and festival contexts.
