When Representation (Almost) Becomes the Norm

Contemporaneity 2.0 at Progress Festival By Molly Johnson

Contemporaneity 2.0 is a curating and presenting series with an aim of “unsettling the widespread use of ‘contemporary’ as describing European and white American theatrical dance.” The series opened with Gitanjali Kolanad’s Gandhari. Using Gandhari, a mythological character from the Mahabharata and the martial art form of kalaripayatuu as dual channels of influence and expression, the work is an examination of loss and its effects on the body.

 

Moving Others

The relationship between audience engagement and attendance By Emma Doran

Most dance artists and presenters must negotiate the tension between creating work that meets their artistic goals, that is accessible to their community and that provides the fiscal support required to live as an artist and to run a company. Emma Doran speaks with artists, organizations and presenters across the country to discuss how they envision their audience, how they are seeking to reach those individuals and what constitutes meaningful engagement with them.

2015/2016 Season Picks

Summer is the season of outdoor festivals and a time spent close to nature’s elements, but it is also a time for thinking ahead and planning for the fall. At The Dance Current we’re already looking forward to the autumn and thought you might like a glance at what’s coming up across the country.
