“Conflict can be seen not only as a place of possibility, but as the origin of all creative action.”
—Dana Caspersen

Conflict specialist, choreographer, and performer Dana Caspersen believes in the power of the individual to positively transform destructive systems. Learn the physicalized methods she has developed for learning and creating change in conflicts—from interpersonal to international—in a unique interactive event that demonstrates what choreographic thinking can illuminate about conflict.

Caspersen’s work draws on 40 years of experience as a performing-arts innovator and extensive international research and practice in conflict analysis and social action. She was a principal artist with Ballet Frankfurt and the Forsythe Company for 30 years, and has developed choreographic work, films, installations, stage texts, and 30 years worth of iconic roles in the oeuvre of choreographer William Forsythe. She is the author of Changing the Conversation: The 17 Principles of Conflict Resolution.
