The Embodied Cognition Workshop: Dance and Physics – 76409

The Embodied Cognition Workshop: Dance and Physics

Yale University’s Emily Coates (Dance) and Sarah Demers (Physics) explore the intersection between kinesthetic imagination and scientific ideas.

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 Projects 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.

Guests without CU or Barnard ID must register for the event. RSVP does not
