In an environment where resources and opportunities to show fully produced work are limited, many artists are adapting to alternative formats for the creation and presentation of their work. How do these often short-form, multidisciplinary, low tech and/or multiple iteration structures affect both how artists make work and how that work is received? How do strategies, such as concentrating on performance as a practice, or creating in modular formats or formats adaptable to site and situation, complicate our concepts of authorship, production, reproducibility and artistic longevity? What are our ideal conditions for a dance?
ABOUT STUDIES PROJECT: A series of artist-instigated panel discussions, roundtables, performances and/or other formats that engage issues of aesthetics, philosophy and social politics relevant to the dance and performance community.
