ON DISPLAY HARVARD 2021
IN HONOR OF INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
You're invited to participate in or attend ON DISPLAY HARVARD 2021 which is part of ON DISPLAY GLOBAL (ODG), a worldwide movement installation created by physically-integrated dance company Heidi Latsky Dance.
The work is performed annually by a network of communities around the world to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The Harvard Dance Center has been an Ambassador of the work for the past three years, coordinating ON DISPLAY HARVARD with diverse participants both with and without disabilities at accessible public spaces on Harvard's campus and, as of last year, virtually.
This year's ON DISPLAY GLOBAL (ODG) will again be a virtual 24-hour live Zoom event that audience members and performers can move into and out of throughout the day. The work is a slow, meditative, structured improvisation that challenges notions of normativity and reflects on the experience of seeing and being seen.
ON DISLAY HARVARD 2021 will take place from 4-5pm EST on the ODG 2021 Zoom, where Harvard community members will perform the work and the broader community is invited to attend and bear witness.
The Harvard Dance Center is thrilled to be partnering this year with Cambridge Common Voices and Harvard Undergraduate Disability Justice Club, two organizations who are promoting disability art, culture, and justice on campus and beyond.
OPEN CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
Participation in ON DISPLAY HARVARD 2021 entails performing the work from your own space as part of a virtual event. It includes a training session with ON DISPLAY HARVARD'S artistic coordinator Ava Untermyer AIE'19 on November 30, 5-6:30pm EST and a short warm-up prior to the event. The movement installation will involve stillness, slow movement, structured improvisation, and internal focus.
No formal dance experience is required. Persons both with or without disabilities (visible or invisible) are encouraged to participate. While this is designed to be a durational work lasting one hour, participants will be offered options for shortening the time they are performing, as needed.
