BIO

Annie Dorsen is a director and writer whose works explore the intersection of algorithms and live performance. Her most recent project, THE SLOW ROOM, premiered at Performance Space New York in Fall 2018. Previous projects, including THE GREAT OUTDOORS (2017), YESTERDAY TOMORROW (2015), A PIECE OF WORK (2013) and HELLO HI THERE (2010), have been widely presented in the US and internationally. The script of A PIECE OF WORK was published by Ugly Duckling Presse, and she has contributed essays for The Drama Review, Theatre Magazine, Etcetera, Frakcija, and Performing Arts Journal (PAJ). She is the co-creator of the 2008 Broadway

musical PASSING STRANGE, which she also directed. In addition to awards for PASSING STRANGE, Dorsen received a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship, a 2016 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant to Artists Award, the 2014 Herb Alpert Award for the Arts in Theater, and a 2008 OBIE Award. She is a Visiting Professor in Theater and Performance Studies at the University of Chicago.

Happy to announce I have joined the faculty at University of Chicago as a Visiting Professor in Theater and Performance Studies.

I wrote a text about Truth is Concrete for Theater Magazine's summer issue, but it's locked. Too bad! You can read it if you want to pay. Or ask me and I'll send it to you.

As part of Joris' performance 4 Prepared Dreams, I will be hypnotized and my unconscious will be laid bare for all to ogle...

Art and politics always have been in strange love/hate relationships. “Truth is concrete” purposely ignores many of the borders, conflicts and resentments. Art is not activism, and activism is not art. But the common ground, the shared space is large and important. It offers a chance for art to be engaged, connected and relevant. And it offers activism a chance not to get stuck in ideology, routine and functionarism, a chance to stay unpredictable and sharp. “Truth is concrete” takes a close look at what happens where the differences between art and activism lose importance.

Over the course of its long history, theater has generally served to reflect, invoke or extend what we understand a human to be. We rig the mirror held up to nature to tilt towards man, displayed within an ever-changing diorama alongside the various institutions of his time: the gods, God, society, the state, the family.

"Digital Dramaturgies" issue includes an interview with me by Alexis Soloski and an excerpt of Hello Hi There

On Tuesday morning, just a few hours into the post-eviction era of Occupy Wall Street, Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times tweeted: ‘Could #Bloomberg be a secret Occupy Wall Streeter? He seems to have just revived the movement.’

On my first visit to Occupy Wall Street, two weeks ago (but it might as well be years, given how rapidly the movement is growing and changing), I sat in on a meeting of the Media Committee. A paper was being passed around, and we were asked to provide email addresses, a list of our skills and the equipment....

Lots of interesting things to read, from Walking Theory (TkH) Belgrade, realized during a 3-year program at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, Paris.

Still pretty far from the end result, but interesting nonetheless.

This is a catalogue listing all movable objects present in the building. There are 10.000 objects that you can buy and leave there to make their use possible for all PAF residents.

"I am really not trying to be cynical. Actually I think the dilemma to some degree flows from the very nature of politics. One thing the explosion of the avant garde did accomplish was to destroy the boundaries between art and politics, to make clear in fact that art was always, really, a form of politics ..."

Human creativity is something of a mystery, not to say a paradox. One new idea may be creative, while another is merely new. What’s the difference? And how is creativity possible? Creative ideas are unpredictable. Sometimes, they even seem to be impossible — and yet they happen. How can that be explained?
