TEDxCalArts: Performance, Body & Presence
The CalArts Center for New Performance presents the first TEDxCalArts conference.
Created and curated with TED’s “Ideas Worth Spreading” mission in mind, TEDxCalArts is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience centered on investigations in contemporary performance.
This all-day event gathers thinkers, doers and innovators from across the performance landscape to discuss big ideas in the live arts that are having an impact on the world. Through a series of short talks and performances that present a diverse array of perspectives and disciplines, the conference explores new understandings of performance and liveness, and examines how these are radically changing the experience of art, technology, design, culture, politics and beyond.
