Sustaining New Talent

About the Project

How do we identify, nurture and sustain promising contemporary dancers and local  artists?                                          
Insights and Ingredients brings together choreographers, artists, musicians and dancers (ingredients) in an atmosphere of collaboration, learning and feedback (insights) to create dances that represent meaning. Unique aspects of this approach include opportunities for emerging artists in several disciplines to share their creativity in real time toward a common purpose. Audience members are invited to observe open rehearsals and to participate in post-performance feedback sessions with the artists to deepen the creative process for everyone. 

In its second year, Insights and Ingredients is again a series of one-weekend workshops that provide opportunities for emerging choreographers, dancers and artists to create dynamic new works through collaboration. Four dances, developed, rehearsed and performed during the workshops, result. Each of these four, including choreographer, artist and dancers, has the potential to become a part of Room To Move Dance’s annual full-length performance concert series.
In late 2020, a minimum of one of these dances will be selected for inclusion in the next performance series (date TBD due to the coronavirus pandemic).  A third weekend of Insights and Ingredients will provide specific rehearsal time to allow the team that developed the piece(s) to adjust, expand and polish their performance with regard to movement quality, spatial design, time and rhythm.
Whereas the Insights and Ingredients workshops are considered development/training (unpaid), this third session will represent professional rehearsal time; dancers and artists will receive a stipend for their participation. Your support allows Room To Move Dance to recognize and reward the contributions of promising dancers and artists, helping to establish their place in the arts community. Thank you for your contribution!
