Choreographer Will Rawls and scholar Adrienne Edwards will discuss relationships between objects, animal figures, and blackness in performance. Rawls is currently working on a digital project for Triple Canopy that investigates the personal and symbolic lineage of a herd of foam-core German shepherds he created for several recent dance works. Rawls and Edwards will consider the German shepherd as symbol for obedience, statehood, violence, domesticity, and identification; they will also discuss the afterlife of objects in research-based performance.
