This Week on Artist Talk (5/3)01 May 2020, Posted by Uncategorized in
This Sunday the weekly program, Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan, continues:
The conversation on Sunday, May 3, brings together one of Hungary’s leading avant-garde choreographers, whose artistic trajectory coincided with radical changes in the political and social life of his country, with a younger generation dance-maker from Poland, whose pedagogy was informed by his work with youth in the blue-collar environs of Katowice. Hollander re-connects with both of them as well as with the American career diplomat who signed off on grants that propelled Battery Dance’s bilateral cultural exchanges with both countries.
Hollander shares that, “working in Eastern Europe in the 1990’s and 2000’s was revelatory on many levels. Among other things, we viewed close-up the way dancers and choreographers were coping with conditions that were much harder than ours. This interview on Battery Dance TV brings me back to that time and simultaneously throws into bold relief the fact that we are now on equal ground facing the blight that the coronavirus has visited upon all of us.”
On Sunday, May 3, at 9 a.m. and 12 noon EDT, on Battery Dance TV
