Cancelled – Talking Politics through Art by Dr. Keith Hennessy on March 27th

Dr. Keith Hennessy

Friday March 27 / 12:30pm to 2pm / UHM Earle Ernst Lab Theatre

1770 East-West Rd, Honolulu, HI 96822

Using recent contemporary performance projects as examples, Hennessy talks about the potentials and limitations of art to address concerns of decolonization, white supremacy, queer and POC futurity, and the crises of democracy. Hennessy’s work centers collaboration, especially across lines of difference, power and privilege. The work explores the tensions between indigeneity and diaspora, safety and risk, healing and provocation. How can queer and anti-racist ethics be developed as artistic practices? How can cultural practices – art, dance, ritual, ceremony, poetics, healing, food – impact political structures? And what about capitalism…? This lecture is made possible by SEED IDEA, Department of Theatre and Dance, Department of American Studies, and Department of Art and Art History.
