New York Times Critics' Pick


Molecular biologist turned groundbreaking choreographer, Xavier Le Roy uses the "illustrated lecture" format to take audiences through his professional journey from scientist to dance maker.

He offers perspectives on politics and the power structures that determine what research really gets done within institutions, and examines the assumptions that frequently determine choices made in the performing arts world.

"Biography as theory. An autobiographical talk becoming a performance. My body as raw material of social and cultural organization and as the practice of critical necessity."
—Xavier Le Roy

In English

This event is part of Lecture/Performance, one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.
