Emerging Leadership Institute at APAP | NYC
The APAP Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI) is an intensive two and a half-day seminar that takes place during the pre-conference of the annual APAP|NYC conference. Each year, APAP invites a new cohort of approximately 25 individuals with 3-7 years of experience to participate in this program where they will learn about leadership and then take that knowledge and apply it first-hand. I'm thrilled to have been invited to attend ELI this year with this inspiring group of future arts leaders. More info

RAWdance and ODC Theater presents Triple Take
For RAWdance’s first season after expanding to two coasts, the company’s three Artistic Directors unite to premiere an eclectic trio of new works. Wendy Rein and Ryan T. Smith present Part I of Shadow, a deep dive into the data “debris” we leave behind in our current digital age as a reflection of what makes us human. The Healer, a premiere by Katerina Wong, mines the ancient history, systems, and beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine and holistic practices, to shed light on our innate ability to overcome physical and emotional suffering. For the final piece in the program, all three Artistic Directors join forces on a new work that utilizes the Surrealist “exquisite corpse” drawing game as a framework for their creative process. Rein and Smith, working as a pair and using video conferencing from NY, and Wong working in the studio in SF, take turns building material without seeing each others’ previous contributions. In this exploration of process and communication, the company embraces uncertain territory and new possibilities to creation.
