The Laboring Dance Studies Body: Race, Class, Nationality and other Disciplinary ChoreographiesA Performative Lecture by José Luis ReynosoThis performative lecture organizes thoughts and/as bodily actions in a series of choices that render this presentation as a choreographic meta-analysis of its methods, its frames, its intentions, and the political implications it might have beyond itself. Highlighting the subjective inevitability in processes of knowledge production, Jose will perform as an artist-scholar-construction-worker on the intersection between corporeality and constructs such as race, class, gender, ethnicity, and nationality. In doing so, this performance raises questions as to the viability of dance and choreography in teaching us about the role of corporeality in the production of subjectivity and the politics of identification as we strive to construct a more egalitarian world.José Luis Reynoso is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dance at UC Riverside. José writes and teaches about the history, theory, and practice of dance and other forms of cultural production as developed in the U.S., Mexico, and other countries in Latin America.
