Co-Sensing with Radical Tenderness
Wednesday, June 16th // 3PM EDT
Performative reading by artist Dani d’Emilia
Radical Tenderness is a term that Dani d’Emilia first encountered whilst working as part of the transnational performance collective La Pocha Nostra. Since then, she has been engaged in a multi-layered embodied investigation of radical tenderness’ intimate, political and metabolic movements. As part of her work with the Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures collective, Dani and Vanessa Andreotti recently co-wrote a short text entitled “Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness.” For this occasion, Dani will be inviting us to enlargen the field of intimacies that seem available to us, journeying through and beyond our screens and physical bodies, being politically and critically alert whilst also opening ourselves to being affectively attuned to—and held by—the wider metabolism we are all part of.
This event is curated by Vanessa Andreotti as part of the Imagining Otherwise program, and co-presented by Publication Studio Guelph, publisher of the English translation of “Co-Sensing with Radical Tenderness.”
