Studies Project: Commissions
Moderated by Danielle Goldman on May 18, 2011
How does power shift when dancers commission works from choreographers? This discussion focused on the reasons for and ramifications of this kind of commissioning process, with a special focus on artistic concerns. Panelists include Jean Butler, Tere O’Connor, Marya Wethers, Daria Faïn, Sonja Kostich and Brandi Norton of OtherShore.
Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances and/or other formats that focus on provacative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersections of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
