MOVING THROUGH THE PANDEMIC PANEL DISCUSSION

Finding space and resources for developing new work has always been an especially difficult challenge for independent choreographers. Most choreographic work takes months to conceptualize, rehearse and workshop before it is ready to be performed for audiences. In order for choreographers to get their work to stage (or performance), the choreographers will rent studios, hire dancers, collaborate with musicians, buy costumes, rent performance venues, hire lighting designers and technicians; all of which can be quite an expensive undertaking. Now, with the pandemic wreaking havoc on all communities, and facilities remaining closed for 8 months, choreographers find themselves at a loss for spaces to create work, as well as unable to find bodies to choreograph with. This conversation will explore how choreographers at different stages in their careers are tackling the challenges of finding space, innovating new ways to interact with dancers and audiences, and channeling inspiration in troubling times

This virtual event will be streamed via Zoom.

Watching via Zoom
Viewers can watch via Zoom. Zoom participants can join in via audio, video, and text chat during the open conversation portion of the lecture. Register here for the meeting and receive a link to join when it begins. Zoom participants are capped at 100 people.

staibdance podcast: Secret Architecture

Stillness is a myth.

We are in constant rotation, constant orbit, we migrate and shift as individuals from room to room, house to job, country to country – birth to death. As we try to answer the unanswerable, we create our own processes of thought and action. If we break ourselves open, we may find inner structures created from remnants of the many who have come before us.

Secret Architecture: the process of process operates from this place. Our ten-part series explores art and culture as invisible and benevolent dictators – as banners that announce our histories. Through dynamic conversations with artists of all kinds, to direct our attention to who we are, we navigate the infinite mysteries of liminal space.

Your Host: George Staib
Podcast Producer: Jacob Chisenhall
Sound Design & Composer: Ben Coleman

Our guests include artists featured on staibdance’s R A D A R series, friends, colleagues, and other movers and shakers in the arts world.
