Greetings from Port of Spain, Trinidad!
New Waves! 2020 will take place 29 July to 1 August. Guest artists are invited to invoke a practice that includes dance, song, word, and play; to create a space where “dancers could dance and be healed from the laborious hierarchies of imperialism and colonization; a space where we could “each re-strategize our own personal vision”. Through four days of performance, movement and reasoning sessions, screenings, communal meals, and informal limes, New Waves! 2020 will explore how dance artists, scholars, teachers, administrators, those in dance production (lighting and costume designers, musicians), and other leaders in the field of dance galvanize, play, workshop, commune, disrupt, engage, celebrate, mourn, heal, and move. Our vision is to embody the depth and spirit of contemporary dance and performance practice in the Caribbean and its Diasporas - in an organizing principle of ‘Emancipation’ - and connect in essential ways that alters and brings out light in one another.
