In Here / Out There: A Digital Dance Series
DANCE IN THE TIME OF CORONA
Inspired by the need to reach out and make art during a time of social distance, physical isolation, collective trauma, and life’s uncertainty, JDT dancers were asked to create a new work in collaboration with another artist OUT THERE. In an effort to connect and stay connected, dancers were encouraged to work with artists such as musicians, writers, or actors, or interesting collaborators of a different type, such as a scientist, engineer, mathematician, ecologist, and create the work virtually through zoom and other means.
In a society that often focuses on ‘me’ instead of ‘we’, JDT is committed to our community and to leading with a human centered value that expresses: ‘we’re all in this together’; that we must continue to believe a better world is still possible, and in the words of Brené Brown “…believe in a world where we can make and share art and words that will help us find our way back to one another.”
We hope you’ll join us.
