OSCLG Annual Conference in Houghton, MI at Michigan Technological University October 9-13, 2013
I will be giving two presentations at the conference this year:
A paper on the concept of and controversy around the "femivore" on the panel Gendered and Feminist Performances in the Social Theatre of Food (Saturday 10.12.13 @ 12:45). Link: Femivores and Feminism: The Politics of Food Consumption and Production
The digital story is viewable here.
I am excited to announce I will be a Guest Artist at The University of Northern Iowa in September 2013!
The residency will includes teaching a "My Life in Art" lecture/conversation with theatre students , about multi-media performance composition for performance studies students (both with Ben Powell, who will also be in residence), and a lecture for the Women's and Gender Studies students in their professional development seminar. Ben and I will present our solo shows back-to-back for two nights in the University of Northern Iowa's Interpreters' Theatre. The copy from their season brochure is below:
Leftovers and Station to Station
Conceived and directed by special professional guest performance artists Brianne Waychoff and Ben Powell
7:30 pm Curtain
September 26 and 27
In Leftovers, Waychoff stitches together gleaned remnants from diverse sources: Jean François Millet’s painting, The Gleaners, her Grandmother’s needlepoint rendering of the same work, and Agnès Varda’s 2000 film, The Gleaners and I. The written text of the piece is a blend of personal narrative and borrowed texts from the fields of art history, documentary filmmaking, performance studies, philosophy, and poetry.
In Station to Station, Powell performs a unique collage of texts, including a collection of letters between Powell’s grandfather and great-grandfather sent between 1935 and ‘36, assembled histories of the US Interstate System, an old mapping guidebook, and fragments of memories and music. Location takes on new meaning as maps are created and offered as possible answers to the questions: "Where have I come from, where am I now, where am I going?”
These two solo performance pieces will be presented together both evenings.
