A Dancer Comments on Ambiguous Chads and Misplaced Mathematical Formulas is a short spoken-word essay that choreographically combines carefully-crafted verbal language with gestural movement to offer a multi-layered meditation on teaching. The performance makes use of body metaphors and images drawn from dance to explore pedagogical ideas, while at the same time offering a visual counterpoint and reinforcement of those images and metaphors through choreographed movement.Lisa Ferrugia Atkinson is a dancer, writer and teacher based in Ann Arbor, MI.
