The Embodied Cognition Workshop: Dance and Physics

February 3, 2014, 7:00pm

 

The intersection between kinesthetic imagination and scientific ideas are explored in this presentation by Yale University professors Emily Coates (Dance) and Sarah Demers (Physics). The presentation will include several outcomes of their collaborative venture, including excerpts of “Incarnations: Sketches for a Longer Work,” which Coates is currently developing for Danspace Project’s Platform 2015, and a screening of their co-created short science-art film, “Three Views of the Higgs and Dance.”

 

Michael Tuts, Professor of Physics at Columbia University, and Carrie Noland, Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine and author of Agency and Embodiment: Performing Gestures/Producing Culture, will offer remarks in response to the presentation, followed by a conversation among the participants.
