At the Nov. 2 Common Hour, the Thursday community discussion held each week classes are in session, Associate Professor of Dance Pamela Vail said the art form of movement is a form of knowledge.
“The body has wisdom, the body has intelligence,” the practicing choreographer said. “The whole body processes, experiences and expresses knowledge, from political to abstract; social to sensual. It is more than just a vehicle that carries us through the world.”
Vail was accompanied by Assistant Professor of Dance Jennifer Conley, a former member of the Martha Graham Dance Company, who introduced dance selections created by the likes of Graham and Isadore Duncan and performed by a group of Franklin & Marshall students.
