Open to the Public

Join Movement Matters guest artist Michael J. Morris for a lunch hosted by Chellis House.

Choreographer, performer, scholar, and educator, Michael J. Morris, will collaborate with Movement Matters through a five-day residency at Middlebury College in April 2016. During their stay, they will offer guest lectures, facilitate a Butoh class, and conduct rehearsals.

Morris works across and between dance studies, performance studies, and sexuality studies. Their work is concerned with destabilizing normative categories through which bodies are made to live and proliferating difference as an irreducible multiplicity through which more lives might come to matter.

Morris holds a PhD in Dance Studies from The Ohio State University and is currently a three-year Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Dance at Denison University. At OSU, Morris was awarded both the Presidential Fellowship and the Graduate Associate Teaching Award, the highest recognitions for graduate research and teaching at Ohio State.
