From This Year's Call for Proposals
“The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire.” Something is broken. Whether or not it can be repaired may not be the right question. The 2022 Annual Meeting invites strategies that draw our attention to and command a multisensory, multiregister engagement with the world as it is and as we want it to be. Our next steps are tentative for reasons revealed by the many fires. Touch the beat, move without instruction, abandon your isolation. We’ve held onto it too long. We gather, now, in this cacophonous conjuncture to pull it apart, piece by piece, in order to continue the creation of something else altogether. What we hope for is time—time to think deeply, struggle, laugh, plot, challenge and be challenged—and presence, together in New Orleans.
