About the Series: Moving Dialogs: "Women in the Director’s Chair" explores the lack of representation of females in positions of leadership and change agency in the United States. Moving Dialogs will address and investigate this phenomenon with a forward thinking, three part discussion series that focuses on women who are reshaping the way we perceive female dance artists, choreographers, and directors.
Moving Dialogs: Women in the Director’s Chair is funded in part by the Chicago Seminar on Dance and Performance.
