Hello all, I just got this information from Liz Waterhouse, dancer of the Forsythe Company. Great talk by William Forsythe & Alva Noë Dance and Consciousness Talk @ the New York Public Library Friday, October 9, 2009 at 1:00 PM Celeste Bartos Forum Stephen A. Schwarzman Building 5th Avenue and 42nd Street (directions) $25 general admission and $15 library donors, students and seniors with valid identification. http://www.nypl.org/research/chss/pep/pepdesc.cfm?id=5847 "World-renowned choreographer William Forsythe and cognitive scientist Alva Noë, author of Out of Our Heads: Why You Are Not Your Brain, and Other Lessons from the Biology of Consciousness, examine consciousness as a kind of dance. Together they will explore Noë’s assertion that consciousness is not something that happens inside of us, in our brains, or anywhere else. It is something we do, in our active engagement with the world." Watch dance-tech.interview with Alva Noë Watch dance-tech.interview with William Forsythe
