Preparation Y is an artistically wild, scientifically accurate movement/theatre piece created by dancer/performance artist Michelle Ellsworth in collaboration with global change biologist Rob Guralnick that explores the science surrounding the shrinkage of the Y chromosome. “Preparation Y” asks the questions, “What will be missed if men are gone?” “How might biodiversity and sustainability of various kinds be affected?” and “How can we replace men with choreography, apparati, web technology, and a well stocked ‘man archive’?” Each performance will be followed by a brief panel discussion with Ellsworth and a scientist.
