Bridging Divides Through Verbatim Performance

Bridging Divides Through Verbatim Performance

Speakers

Through careful study and replication of an individual’s speech and gestural patterns, verbatim performance can cultivate empathy and disrupt assumptions and biases across a spectrum of political, cultural, and social experiences. This embodied exploration of difference—“breathing as another person”—utilizes arts-based research as a way to better understand our troubling times. Original media artifacts and curricula using these techniques and inspired by recent events will be presented.
