An Open Dialogue with Visiting Guest Artist, Jordan Fuchs and Dance Chair, Jeffery N. Bullock. Dance artists, scholars, and practitioners challenge us to think critically about how dance is perceived, acknowledged, and valued in our diverse communities and cultures. With full effort, they work to express and share through research, practice, performance, and the writing of dance. Dance artists, scholars, and practitioners are committed to research and experimentation and in the process, they shape and expand radical possibilities for self-actualization. This open dialogue will focus on embodied dance practices and the persistent effort to transgress towards liberation. Jordan Fuchs is an associate professor of dance at Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX, and a recipient of the prestigious 2012 TWU Mary Mason Lyon Award for Excellence in Scholarship, Teaching, and Service.
