Dance & Embodied Curiosity, with Erin Foreman-Murray

“Dance is how I practice curiosity. It is the vehicle through which I’m asking questions about the world — and investigating questions about the world. ”  ~Erin Foreman-Murray

Twice, now, I’ve handed the show’s reins to a student intern and been delighted with their vision and willingness to dive into conversations I might not have thought to seek. This week, Michela Dwyer talks with dancer, choreographer, educator and American University professor Erin Foreman-Murray about dance and embodied curiosity.

It is a lovely conversation, full of quiet eloquence and the intimate warmth of a student and teacher dancing with one another’s ideas…

Many thanks to Perry Zurn, Asia Ferrin and the Department of Philosophy and Religion at American University for the privilege of working with their students. Later this year, I’ll launch a “Guest Host” series of episodes conceived and pitched by AU students specifically for this show. I look forward to unveiling more surprising and exciting conversations like this one. Stay tuned!
