What are the interactions between drawing and performance? How are both performance and dance acts of tracing and recall and ghost holders, both initiating future and surfacing past? In this class, we will gather to explore questions of performance and drawing, its lineage in art and dance, and use movement and drawing experiments to materialize these studies.

This class will be held in person at the Abrons Arts Center.
