Join me and three dynamic dance artists--Sydnie L. Mosley, luciana achugar and Sarah A.O. Rosner--for the next Center Line program at Gibney Dance:
Not the Master’s Tools: Dance Artists Create Alternatives
Tuesday, November 3 (6-8pm)
moderated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa
("The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House" – essay by Audre Lorde, 1984)
Artists share alternative philosophies and strategies for working in the dance profession – from making to marketing to surviving in a difficult economy and competitive city. How do we keep body and soul together, enjoy the creative process and move our work forward? Bring your own experiences and questions.
Each panelist will share a brief presentation (10-12 minutes) on an alternative philosophy or methodology that has worked for them or that they are currently exploring. After the presentations, we will open the discussion up to the audience for questions and further knowledge sharing!Admission free with RSVP here
