Please join us for a continuation of our Dialogues in Dance as we explore issues and challenges of archival practices in dance.
The Department of Dance at Marymount Manhattan College has been organizing a lecture series for many years to further the promotion and contextualization of dance in our college and the larger dance community. We will continue this discourse by talking to the next generation of choreographers and their specific approaches to multi-media and technology.
Dance and media artist, member Merce Cunningham Dance Company, BoD Chez Bushwick, New York City
Video designer and installation artist, New York City
Dancer, choreographer, and puppeteer, New York City
These three panelists situate themselves distinctly in relation to technology, media, and boundaries between art forms. The panelists’ diverse performance and creative practices as well as their experience at all levels of artistic production allow for an exploration of interdisciplinarity and multi-medialization as constructive sites of choreographic endeavors:
Jonah Bokaer addresses the human body in relation to contemporary technologies in his choreographic and performance work.
Maya Ciarrocchi highlights the impact of new technological developments on dance and other performing arts.
Christopher Williams talks about the specific challenge to the engagement of seemingly disparate art forms for choreography.
