Dance choreographers gain inspiration for new dances in a variety of ways: sometimes re-creating or re-imagining the work of a choreographer who has come before; other times shattering all norms and traditions to break new ground.
In this program, four dancers and choreographers will discuss their varied approaches to creating new dances. They will offer wide-ranging perspectives on incorporating dance traditions found in archives or historic film footage, as well as using their knowledge of dance practice to break away from tradition and attempt something completely new.
Join us for a fascinating glimpse into the influences and creative processes that go into new dance design.
Cosponsored with The Morrison-Shearer Foundation, which perpetuates the legacy of dancer-choreographer Sybil Shearer and photographer Helen Balfour Morrison as an inspiration for new creativity in the arts.
