On Sunday January 13, 2013 Culturebot hosted a Long Table on Social Practice and Performance at the Under the Radar Festival.

Social Practice, Civic Practice and Socially Engaged Art – what does it mean to make socially conscious performance, often working working with non-artist communities? What are the aesthetic, political and practical challenges of making theater in community without making “community theater” - or is that distinction no longer relevant? Join artists and curators and thinkers from multiple backgrounds for a discussion of this longstanding but newly vital field.

DISCUSSANTS:
Wenzel Bilger (Program Director of the Goethe-Institut New York)
Gonzalo Casals (Deputy Executive Director, El Museo Del Barrio)
Jan Cohen-Cruz (Editor, Public: A Journal of Imagining America and University Professor, Syracuse University)
Edwin Culp (Associate Professor at the Communications Department, Universidad Iberoamericana)
Simon Dove (Independent Curator)
Melanie Joseph (Artistic Producer for the Foundry Theater)
Florian Malzacher (Artistic Director of Impulse Theatre Biannual 2013, Germany, and Freelance Dramaturge/Curator)
Michael Rohd (Founding Artistic Director, Sojourn Theatre)
Ruth Wikler-Luker (Curator & Producer, Boom Arts)
Sara Zatz (Associate Director, Ping Chong + Company)
