Stage Directions (UAW 2865) is a two-channel video stemming from a series of workshops held with the UCLA graduate student workers union (UAW). In these workshops performative and pedagogical exercises facilitated a dialogue around precarious work, organizational structures, inherited narratives and how these terrains play host to performances of power.
Special thanks to the workshop participants:
And the wider community of members and organizers of UAW 2865.
