+THE POLARITY PARTY is a participatory choreographic event examining polarization.
With no dancing. But all of the sensation.
Led by the Michael Douglas Kollektiv and Dana Caspersen
The Polarity Party integrates practices from the fields of both choreography and conflict engagement. The event invites participants into an experience that is both intimate and analytical, using physical action as a way to organize ideas and make thoughts visible.
