T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko’s book “Learning How to Fall”

T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko is Associate Professor at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies. She coedited TDR’s special issue “Caught Off-Garde: New Theatre Ensembles in NYC (mostly)” with Mariellen R. Sandford in 2010, and, with Isabel Stowell-Kaplan and Didier Morelli in 2015, a special issue of CTR entitled “Performing Products: When Acting Up Is Selling Out.”  She has presented talks and papers internationally, and, as an occasional dramaturge, collaborated on productions in New York, Toronto, Chicago, and Morelia, Mexico. In fall 2012, Professor Cesare Schotzko organized the The Future of Cage: Credo in celebration of the centenary of composer John Cage, which brought together an international and interdisciplinary array of scholars and artists including Allen S. Weiss and Pauline Oliveros, and culminated in a new performance of Cage’s 1976 Lecture on the Weather. Her first book, Learning How to Fall: Art and Culture after September 11, engages the skewed relationship between 21st-century media technologies, perception, and pop culture, and her current research explores what she considers to be a trending nihilism, or #nihilism, within literal and metaphoric climate change.

T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko will present her work at After the Fact, a one day symposium examining the place and potential of The Event, hosted by  candidates from the ICP-Bard MFA program. The event will take place on December 12 at ICP School (1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, NY, NY 10036). The door opens at 10am for registration and breakfast. Morning session begins at 11am and afternoon session begins at 2pm. To learn more about the symposium, please visit afterthefact2015.wordpress.com.
