Anna Myer is one of the recently named MCC FY10 Choreography Fellowship finalists. The excerpt above is from her piece Street Talk Suite Talk. It is a remarkable example of her artistic vision and commitment to experimentation and collaboration. She definitely walks the walk, and talks the talk.
If you are among the many dancers, cultural enthusiasts, arts administrators, community organizers, social activists, social scientists (you get the picture) who agree that dance has vastly untapped potential as a powerful force to shape communities, then join in on this first of a series of free discussions called Talk About Dance, a program of Dance for World Community on Sunday, June 13.
Barbara Schaffer Bacon, co-director of Animating Democracy, a program of Americans for the Arts, will moderate this afternoon of learning, conversation, and social interaction – all around dance and the expanded role it can play in galvanizing communities to meet civic, social, and environmental challenges.
Panelists include: De Ama Battle, Founder/Director, Art of Black Dance and Music; Isabel Fine, Director of Programs, Springstep; Eddie Gonzalez-Novoa, Executive Director, Public Allies; Louisa McCall, Co-Director, Artists in Context; and Jason Weeks, Executive Director, Cambridge Arts Council.
Bring your voice to the table and be an active participant in these uniquely intimate conversations that can help shape the future role of dance in the Greater Boston Area and beyond. See old friends and meet new people. Contribute to the list of issues, concerns, ideas and perspectives that will be shared at this event.
