Green Space is pleased to present the new virtual program “(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue.” The series brings together BIPOC choreographers who have shown work in Green Space’s programming series: Fertile Ground, Take Root, and Green Space Blooms throughout our 15-year history.
Artists rotate being virtually paired for five weeks in un-moderated discussion, prompted by questions generated by the Green Space Artist Advisory Board. Supported with video samples to contextualize their work and perspective, each artist has free reign to define their presence through this platform, designed to serve as a safe space for raw, open, honest, artist-led dialogue without preconceived results.
For more information on the artists and to view the dialogues, please visit https://www.greenspacestudio.org/un-common-ground
