How Do You Respond? is a series of ongoing discussion groups by OFEN Co-Arts Platform examining workplace situations which arise in the performing arts and negatively impact people. Now presented by the Tanzkongress 2022, we bring a common scenario to discuss that will be familiar to anyone, in any function, working in the dance industry.

The situation we propose: you are instructed to work in a way that you don't like and don't feel productive. How do you respond?

During the 90 minute online discussion, we’ll unpack this scenario together, identify broader industry themes which relate to the situation and discuss how we can respond to them either by utilising useful vocabulary, communicating with peers, or speaking up to power, while respecting our needs including autonomy, body sovereignty and rest. We hope that this exchange can support your practice in some way and aid in advocating for better working conditions in dance.
