Choreographers in Residence and in Conversation (CIRC)
CIRC artists Ann Carlson, Sharon Moore* and Aynsley Vandenbroucke are choreographing work on our campus this fall. Please join us for Pizza and Process in which they will reveal some of their useful trade secrets as well as the uncertainties, complexities, dead ends and revelations of their current artistic undertakings.
CIRC is a new initiative designed to provide professional artists already working on campus with additional support to further their work on a current artistic project. The initiative seeks not only to provide space and funds to these artists, but also to facilitate their connections with other artists on campus and with students. Choreographers may use this time to work with professional dancers, student volunteers or on their own bodies. During their semester of residency, the choreographers will gather together for two public exchanges with students. The first of these open events will be an artistic conversation in which the choreographers will share their ideas for their upcoming work and describe how they plan to approach their projects in terms of their choreographic tools and processes. The second event will be a showing in which the choreographers will perform some of the results, however unfinished, of their work during this period. The emphasis in this initiative is the artistic process. Choreographers will reveal some of their useful trade secrets and honestly share with the students the uncertainties, complexities, dead ends and revelations of their recent artistic undertakings.
*Sharon Moore's research residency is co-sponsored by Princeton’s Canadian Studies program.
