The Women's Studies Program presents "Ordinary Wars" as part of the 31st Annual Conference on the Advancement of Women April 16-18, 2015. This year we are kicking off the conference with a FREE performance
of "Ordinary Wars", a presentation of social science data through dance featuring
Flatlands Dance Theatre.
Featuring the research of Elizabeth Sharp and Genevieve Durham-DeCesaro, "Ordinary Wars" is based on social science data investigating women’s identities and notions of femininity. The concert is 1 hour in length (including intermission) and features professional dancers and actors from Flatland Dance Theatre,
As of this writing, the live performance of "Ordinary Wars" has been presented four times in four different venues in three states, with considerable success.
In connection with the performance, a ‘talk back’ session (approximately 30-45 minutes) immediately following the performance for audience members to engage deeper with the ideas and ask the performers and researchers about the project.
This project is sponsored by: Texas Tech University Office of the Vice President for Research, Texas Tech University College of Human Sciences Seed Grant and Anthony Marchionne Small Grants Foundation.
