Announcing TEDxCalArts: Performance, Body & Presence, March 9th in Los Angeles

On March 9, 2013 the California Institute of the Arts Center for New Performance will host TEDxCalArts at REDCAT in downtown Los Angeles. This all-day event will gather thinkers, doers and innovators to talk about the big ideas that are shaping our world.

Through a series of talks and performances by a diverse array of presenters, our conference will explore how new understandings of performance and liveness are radically changing our experience of art, technology, culture, and politics.

Some of our speakers are performance-based artists, i.e. electronic music pioneer Atau Tanaka, or dancer/choreographer Nora Chipaumire. We also made efforts to look around and outside of the arts for other perspectives that can enhance and inform our understanding of performance, i.e. activists the Yes Men, architect Peggy Deamer, and media-theorist Franco Berardi Bifo.

Other speakers include:

Sardono Kusomo, Dancer, Choreographer
Chris Kallmyer, Musician, Artist
Mirjana Jokovic, Actress
Teddy Cruz, Architect
Ricardo Dominguez, Artist & Activist, UCSD Center for Drone Policy and Ethics
Brian Massumi & Erin Manning, Social Theorist, Media Artist

With special performances by:

Killsonic, Experimental Orchestra Marching Band
Douglas Kearney, Poet/Performer
Ajay Kapur, Music Roboticist
Jeepneys, Music/Magic/Healing

And perhaps some surprise special guests!
