MJ Thompson

Department Contributor

MJ Thompson writes about dance, visual art and politics. Her work has appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, Dance Magazine, Border Crossings, Canadian Art, The Drama Review, Women and Performance, and other publications. She was a Lillian S. Robinson Fellow at the Simone de Beauvoir Institute in Montréal in 2010. She currently teaches art history and performance studies in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University in Montréal. A generalist by nature, MJ continues to write about dance. She says, “Dance has always seemed like a very particular window onto all the things I care most about: beauty, work, failure, love, the endless stuff that people do and get up to. Dance asks us to look at bodies, openly, amid a political context that increasingly would rather control, contain, ignore or imprison them.”
