Conversation: Structures for Discord



If you’re wondering, “what is agonism?,” join designer and Open Field Artist-in-Residence Carl DiSalvo, artist/educator Marisa Jahn, media theorist Warren Sack, and architect Mark Shepard for a lively and interactive presentation to unpack and debate the term.

Part conversation, part performance, this won’t be your typical panel. The session will include choreographed lighting and movement on stage (based on choreography of Balanchine’s Agon ballet), an interrogatory analog tweet choir who will transform your 140 character comment into a song lyric, and a game of Bingo to track the number of times speakers use words like ‘dissensus.’
