Hatch is at it again!
We're starting 2017 with an intensive collaboration in Middlebury Vermont with choreographer Maree ReMalia. Working with guest artists Hyunjung Lee and Joseph Hall, we are exploring seeds of ideas that will grow into our next crop of full-length work. In addition to this new work, Hatch is collaboratively teaching a class that focuses on collaboration in the arts (more below).
In collaboration with with Andrew W. Mellon Interdisciplinary Choreographer Maree ReMalia’s Movement Matters Project, Hatch is teaching a class about collaboration in the arts.
What happens when a musician dances, a choreographer writes, a micro-biologist makes a sculpture? Artists and those who are creatively curious, come play, experiment, and engage in collaboration across artistic and academic disciplines. We will consider how stretching in this way helps us acknowledge and embrace difference and reveal information across our many, intersecting identities. Focusing on the creative process, this course explores artistic expression and helps students generate new collaborative projects which may include performances, installations, and hybrid works. Throughout the term, we will generate journals and mini projects that culminate in substantial final projects that are original, collaborative, and unpredictable. Creative and scholarly sources supporting this class include the practice of contemporary improvisational methods, viewing recent film, visual art, and dance performance, as well as engaging with current readings, interviews, and discussions related to collaboration in the arts. We will also touch on the entrepreneurial aspects of creative process, such as writing artistic statements, project descriptions, and grant proposals.
This course will be led by Movement Matters Interdisciplinary Choreographer, Maree ReMalia and her team – Hatch Arts Collective’s Paul Kruse, Adil Mansoor, and Nicole Shero and Deputy Director of Programming and Operations for BAAD! Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, Joseph Hall. The instructors will draw from their professional backgrounds in arts administration, arts education, dance, film, theater, visual art, writing, and more.
