Circling Back: DIY Dance Media (New York, NY)

By | Events

Thursday, December 6, 2018 / 6-8pm
Gibney 280 Broadway
280 Broadway (enter 53a Chambers)
New York, NY 10012
FREE EVENT
RSVP:  gibneydance.org

Curated and hosted by Senior Curatorial Director, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Center Line is a series highlighting issues in the dance community through monthly conversations (Long Tables) and experiential gatherings (Circling Back).

Circling Back events are experiential gatherings, guided by dance community elders, in which artists reflect on themes and ideas from the previous Long Table while sharing wisdom, core values, and ways of living that inform their creative movement practice. Each circle—unique in format and content—will establish respectful, generous and generative space held by the guides and all who attend.

How do we take control of our own messages and media as dance artists and advocates? How can a DIY ethic expand opportunities for documentation and promotion of dance? How can you get started setting up and producing content for an alternative dance medium? Let’s talk about the blogs, podcasts, social media feeds and groups, zines and dedicated sites we have created or enjoyed.

Circling Back Guides: Erin Carlisle Norton, Stephanie Acosta

In partnership with Gibney’s Digital Media Initiative.

The Moving Architects Seeks Female Dancers

By | Events

The Moving Architects (TMA), led by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton, is currently seeking invested, inquisitive, and intelligent female dancers for projects beginning summer 2018.  Dancers should have a movement foundation grounded in ballet and modern dance forms with the ability to execute aggressive, physically demanding, technical, and articulated movement.  Additional skills needed: working intimately within an ensemble; ease with improvisation, movement manipulation, and partner work; and readiness for an investigatory rehearsal process. Rehearsals are Sundays and/or Tuesday evenings, and dancers are paid for performances as well as on a project-by-project basis. Preference is given to dancers available for an out of state residency August 7-11, and women of color are encouraged to apply.

TO APPLY:

Fill out form at link below, which includes a video link to a 2-minute solo improvisation and a headshot along with requested information.  Note: Dance reels will NOT be accepted or links to websites as video submission.  Application deadline: JUNE 12.  Select dancers will be asked to attend a company class on the afternoon of Sunday, June 24, in NYC.  Invitation to attend class will be made by June 19.
