Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness by Dani d’Emilia and Vanessa Andreotti

For our next online Publication Studio Workshop we will publish Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness, a beautifully poetic and inspiring text Dani d’Emilia and Vanessa Andreotti began writing in 2018, based on thoughts expressed by the collective Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures [GTDF]. Initially called “An Invitation to Radical Tenderness”, this text has been shape-shifting alongside their artistic-pedagogic collaboration “Engaged Dis-identification”, which attempts to translate post-representational modes of engagement into embodied experiments that reconfigure the connections between reason, affect, and relationality.
Radical Tenderness is a term that Dani first encountered whilst working as part of the transnational performance collective La Pocha Nostra (2009-2016). Since then, Dani has been engaged in a multi-layered co-sensing of radical tenderness’ movements on personal, political, and spiritual realms. A first radical tenderness manifesto written by Dani in collaboration with Daniel B. Chavez (2015) as well as info on Dani’s work with radical tenderness in different performance-pedagogy contexts can be accessed here: www.danidemilia.com
Materials will be available for pick-up at the gallery in advance of the workshop, and can also be mailed to participants who register by Monday, May 30 (with an additional shipping fee of $5). We will gather together online to read and discuss the publication together. Feel free to order your limited copy of this incredible book, even if you are unable to attend the launch event.
