Movement Research Studies Project studies curation, inclusion, community

Studies Project: Let Me In Let Me In Or I'll Blow This House DownCurators on Process and the Matter of Inclusion

Moderated by Juliette Mapp and Jen Rosenblit

520 East 6th Street (between Avenues A and B), Manhattan


To feel a part of something. Communal, to have community. To be asked, invited in, to ask to be invited in. Access, entry. While the role of curator and the process of curation holds as much artistry as the making of dance and performance, we hone in on an equally important need for a touch of transparency surrounding the presentation of dance and the body. What issues and concerns arise inside of a shifting community where representation is crucial for belonging and sustainable support? What are we doing to reach out to more artists? Where are those artists? Who are those artists? What are the complexities that arise while supporting the sustainability of an artist? What responsibility do we have to an idea of cultivating and supporting "newness"? Where is the body inside all of this? How do we digest being on the inside or outside of something spiritually, aesthetically, emotionally and academically?
