I'm looking forward to a new season in the arts in New York!
Please join me on September 27 and November 8
for two special Long Table conversations
at Gibney Dance,
free and open to all!
Center Line Conversation Series
Curated and facilitated by dance writer and independent curator Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Center Line is a conversation series highlighting issues concerning the dance community. Center Line conversations will adopt performance artist Lois Weaver’s non-hierarchical Long Table format to encourage “informal conversation on serious topics.”
Casting About: About Casting
Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30pm
Initiated by Yanira Castro, Casting About: About Casting will explore present day dynamics of cast, audience and choreographer. What does a cast represent? How does access to resource affect the composition of a cast, and does this change the relationships between performers, the work and the choreographer? Does the mutability of the contemporary performer challenge or stimulate creativity? Invited participants include Yanira Castro, Aaron Mattocks, Judy Hussie-Taylor, Kyle Bukhari and Leslie Cuyjet.
Moving into Writing
Wednesday November 8 at 6:30pm
Moving into Writing considers approaches to the written word as response to, collaboration with and documentation of dance and performance. What can writers and dancers learn from each other? What role do writers play within local, national and international dance ecosystems? How can dance artists best interact with critics, scholars and creative writers in their field? Participants may bring one sample written about or for dance, to share if time permits (350 words, maximum). Invited participants include Maura Donohue, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Paloma McGregor, Tara Sheena and Marissa Perel.
