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.
