Exercise in Solidarity at University College Dublin


After 6 months of intense work as an artist in residence at UCD for Race, Migration and Decolonial Studies, Dr Alice Feldman and I launched our six week lab on Solidarity. The course is designed for MA and Undergraduate s students at UCD to engage with their embodied understanding of solidarity.
It has been especially exciting designing a course and choreographing a set of body based exercises to wrestle with the difficult concepts of solidarity and allyship, especially for a zoom based platform in this time of restricted movement . I have found that in some ways it has been a liberating experience offering up its own rewards and challenges.
