The Performance Movement: The Obvious and Outrageous Way Out of the Epistemological Fly Bottle


Join Carrie Lobman and Gwen Lowenheim, of the “Yes, and…” HigherEd Network (
for a generative conversation touching on ways in which humanity has been betting our future on the human capacity to know things, to make sense of the world and yet we need new tools to thrive in the Anthropocene. Changing, growing does not hinge on knowing, but on a direct, activity-based interaction with the world.

Join us for a thought provoking and creative conversation based on “The Obvious and Outrageous Way Out of the Epistemological Fly Bottle” (, a talk that Lois Holzman gave at “Alive in the Anthropocene,” in 2021. In her talk, Holzman teaches us how to engage the mass psychology of alienation, individualism, and passivity.

Find out how people around the world are creating new ways of being together as we philosophize, play and explore possibilities for education.
