Biography: Brenda Dixon Gottchild

Thursday 9 May 2019

Biography is a platform that recognises and celebrates the work of experienced dance practitioners. In 2019, Biography presents a lecture-demonstration from Brenda Dixon Gottschild, professor emerita of dance studies at Temple University, Philadelphia. Brenda is known for her ongoing quest to bring the African American cultural contribution to the fore.

Brenda’s career has journeyed from artist-performer to writer-scholar, from practitioner to observer, and a combination of both. The two developments are driven by the same passion for the performing arts and Brenda’s belief in performance as a highly charged, socio-political phenomenon.

This is a unique opportunity to hear first-hand. Limited capacity venue, early booking is recommended.
