The Hampshire College Dance Program, Theatre Program, and the Ethics and the Common Good Project host a lunchtime series of artist talks:
DESIRE LINES: ARTIST TALKS ON BODY, LAND, MEMORY, AND PLACE
Featuring visionary choreographers, theater makers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the United States who activate the intersections between embodied performance and site-based practices
All talks were on Mondays from 12 – 1 and were free and open to the public.

The talks were hosted by Hampshire professors Deborah Goffe, Will MacAdams, and Lailye Weidman and facilitated by students from their two courses: “Desire Lines: Mapping Home in the Dancing Body” and “Desire Lines: Theater/Text/Movements through Space and Place.” The courses offer students a distinct opening to create theatre and dance exploring the physical and felt relationship to the environment during a time of uprising and pandemic.
