Spot-on founder Chris Nolan’s got an unusual speaking gig this weekend. On Sunday, she’ll join a panel “of experts on civil liberties and media responsibility” at ODC, San Francisco’s modern dance company to discuss …well, to discuss how and why they search your luggage at the airport. This was not an organized follow-up to her adventures with airport security last weekend, just one of those little ironies life hands you from time to time.
The discussion is, however, a follow-up to the premier of ODC founder Brenda Way’s latest piece, “A Pleasant Looking Woman in Sensible Clothes.” Other panelists include the Los Angeles Times’ writer Michelle Quinn, an experienced tech journalist, American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Ann Brick and, of course, Way herself. It’ll be moderated by KQED’s Kathryn Baron.
Tickets for Sunday’s premier aren’t easy to come by but tickets for ODC/Dance Downtown, the company’s series at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, are on sale here. And, as always, if there’s audio of the session, we’ll be sure and put up a link.
