October 17, 2013: Tara Mateik, Friends of Dorothy workshop
Tara Mateik will take on questions of collaboration in our first workshopping session of the Film Studies Seminar. He will present content related to an upcoming performance at the Graduate Center, the staging of a silent film shoot that will be incorporated into his larger Friends of Dorothy project.
The objective of this workshop is to address the challenges of collaboration and improvisation in politically-informed performance work. A further challenge is posed by the historical and theoretical models Mateik draws from. He’ll be looking for our collective insights into strategies for bridging theory and practice in his November performance.
Below, find links to a project description and two short readings that will help to inform our discussion.
