Dance artists exploring new directions: Thank you!

Many thanks to my excellent guest panelists--Sydnie L. Mosley, luciana achugar and Sarah A.O. Rosner--who shared their experience and knowledge last evening at Gibney Dance. From the centrality of investing in sisterhood and partnering with community, to the courage to claim room in a city's public spaces for the practice of pleasure, to the challenges of funding and marketing an unusually multifaceted project, these three artists offered stories of adventurous questioning and questing that can inspire our own work and lives.

"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!

Not the Master’s Tools: Dance Artists Create Alternatives will return to Gibney Dance on Monday, December 7 (6-8pm) with a new group of panelists to be announced here within the next several days.

Remember, these conversations are free and open to all. Your pre-registration--via a Gibney Dance site to come--will help us plan for the best space, but walk-ins are certainly welcome. Help us spread the word, and bring your friends and colleagues!
