Jill Sigman

This interactive program features live movement, audience discussion, and other ways of nurturing engagement to take on the questions: How can dance be a valuable part of social change? How is movement activism part of the frontier of dance? Why does society need the extraordinary skills of dancers more than ever right now? Guest-curated by agent of change Jill Sigman, selected choreographers present work that forges connections between their somatic selves and social engagement. The program includes new work by Stacy Lynn Smith and an excerpt from Jill Sigman’s “This is Where We Are” which grew out of the kind of artistic process used in the Body Politic program, offering a glimpse into the evolving faces of art and activism. Sigman also signs copies of her book, Ten Huts, following the event.
