Artist Camilo Godoy recently transformed Recess into a dance studio as part of his Session: Out of Control. During his time at Recess, Godoy developed a choreography with dancers Julianne Cariño, Miguel Angel Guzmán, and Yolette Yellow-Duke entitled What did they actually see? and engaged the public through film screenings, workshops, performances, and a dance party. Join us on Wednesday, February 13 at 7pm for a zine launch of a publication that includes photographs from this Session and a text by Vivian Crockett commissioned as part of Recess's Critical Writing Program. This event will include a performance demonstration followed by a conversation between Crockett, Godoy, Cariño, Yellow-Duke, and the audience.
