On January 9th, with great pleasure and for the second time, UCSC Professor of Dance in the Theatre Art and Director of the Center for Visual and Performance Studies Mark Franko came onto Artist on Art to talk about the current speaker series, Temporalities of Reenactment happening the entire 2011 to 2012 school year.

Prof. Franko is the Editor for the Dance Research Journal and the Oxford Studies in Dance Theory and a Critic for Opedgy Arts and Performance. He is a theorist, critic and practitioner.

We had an interesting conversation concerning re-constructions, re-enactments and authenticity.

Mark your calendars for these upcoming VPS talks and performances. All the events are free and open to the public. All the talks are held on Thursdays in the Cowell Conference Room at 5:30.
