NCCAkron Dancing Conversation: Dance & Music

NCCAkron Dancing Conversation: Dance & Music

Presented by The National Center for Choreography at the University of Akron at Online/Virtual Space

Our spring series of Dancing Conversations begins this week!

If you’ve been tuning in to Inside the Dancer’s Studio, you’ve heard one-on-one interviews with artists and NCCAkron’s Executive/Artistic Director Christy Bolingbroke.

Dancing Conversations take a broader approach — gathering artists together to unpack dance’s intersections with other fields and issues.

On Thursday, April 15, choreographer John Heginbotham (New York, NY), dancer and video editor Maile Okamura (New York, NY) and violinist and composer Colin Jacobsen (New York, NY) will talk about the relationship of dance and music.

Heginbotham, an acclaimed contemporary and Broadway choreographer, is a NCCAkron Research Residency artist, and also had a Satellite Residency with NCCAkron during COVID. That Satellite Residency supported 24 Caprices, a project built around the work of composer Nicolò Paganini with Jacobsen as musician and Okamura as video editor.

All Dancing Conversations take place on #ThirdThursdays at 7pm. RSVP at the link in our bio to join us on YouTube for free!

Future conversations include Liz Lerman on women & witchcraft (May 20) and Charles O. Anderson, Jean Appolon, Kevin Lee-Y Green, Dominic Moore-Dunson, and Iquail Shaheed on working as Black male choreographers.
