Points of Reference Friday March 27 at 12pm
Delirious Dances invites you to a performance of Manufacturing Consent by Edisa Weeks, followed by a discussion with Blondell Cummings and a panel of experts from the fields of history, journalism, law and entertainment. Manufacturing Consent is inspired by the writing of linguist and political commentator Noam Chomsky, the dance Three Seascapes by Yvonne Rainer, and the 'King of Musac' - Mantovani and his orchestra of cascading strings. It is a physical exploration of propaganda, pleasure and the creation of illusions.

Points of Reference is curated by Blondell Cummings, and is a performance and roundtable discussion that explores the silent dialogue between the choreographer and their audience. The panelist/audience will give responses to the work based on their specific point of view. Audiences bring their cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs, professional and personal experiences to any work of art. We will examine how our perceptions reflect on this common communal experience.
