Col(LAB) 3.0: (Collective) Self-Portraiture: Autobiography and its Discontents

Yin Mei and Dahlia Li

February 17-18, 2022, 5 to 6:30 p.m.
Roberts Dance Studio W201, Lewis Arts Complex

What is collective self-portraiture in the age of the selfie and post-Zoom proximity? What is an “American portrait” in an age of technological mediation, social division, and isolation?

Join the AMS Collaboratory, a pop-up interdisciplinary experiment devoted to the intersection of innovation, theory, and practice. Col(LAB) 3.0 turns to dance and documentation to find a different flow and shape for offering others a glimpse of ourselves.

Dance artists Yin Mei and Dahlia Li will conduct a 2-day workshop using the materiality of bodies, paper, ink, and water.

Sign up required. Limited space.
No previous art or dance experience required.

Yin Mei choreographs and performs her works worldwide through her company, Yin Mei Dance, and teaches at Queens College.

Dahlia/Dixon Li ’14 is an artist and a writer currently based in Brooklyn, NY.

Cosponsored by the Lewis Center for the Arts, the Department of English, and the New England Foundation for the Arts.
