Polly Thistlewaite and Liz Snyder, Recovering Doubt: A documentary’s Staged Deceptions, Performing Knowledge 2018

Thursday, December 12
Segal Theatre
All day lecture performances

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served

What can knowledge feel or look like? How might it move us? What might the emotional and aesthetic effects of knowledge be, in addition to the cognitive? How does one know or come to know? What place do repetition, gesture, rhythm, mimesis, rehearsal, meditation, and travel have in knowledge?

Now in its second year, Performing Knowledge is a one-day festival of knowledge performances that accommodate and celebrate contradiction, that find their meaning in specific social contexts, and that may end with a question mark. Prominent scholars and graduate students across disciplines come together to reframe research and knowledge as happy human and intrinsically social occasions.

Throughout the day, GC CUNY students and faculty will pesent their research as 20-30 minute lecture performances. Check website for schedule updates.

Co-produced by Margit Edwards and Cory Tamler.

Performing Knowledge was conceived by Amir Farjoun and Mara Valderrama, Ph.D. Students of Theatre and Performance at the Graduate Center CUNY, in 2018 in collaboration Frank Hentschker of the Segal Center.
