Artist Feature Series
Dance is a lifelong discipline of constant practice, study, effort and creativity. More often than we realize, dancers find themselves expressing the creative impulse in mediums other than movement. Whether they sketch, compose, cook, paint, collage, design, photograph or film they find a different side of themselves from the one exposed in motion.
We are curious about these lesser known bodies of work–these sketchbooks under the bed, these paintings in apartments, these murals on the street. We are intrigued by people we know who began in dance and moved on to other creative careers, so often informed by what they learned as performers. Our new Artist Feature series will introduce them to you. You’ll see what they’ve been making and hear them talk about why they do it. And next time you see them on stage, you’ll feel like you know a secret.
