Open Call for East Boston BIPOC Artists – BDT SURGE Fellowship

Organization
Boston Dance Theater
Workplace street address
TBD
City
East Boston
State
Massachusetts
Select One
Temporary or contract assignment
Description

A paid creative residency for a group of BIPOC performing artists residing in East Boston to reflect on the impacts of local climate events, build on existing narratives of resilience to climate change, and to envision a thriving future for the East Boston community through artistic presentation. Fellows will share stories and be guided through the creation of movement and spoken word to be presented during a culminating performance outdoors, in East Boston, alongside BDT’s performance of SURGE. While BDT and ocean physicist Dr. Larry J. Pratt will provide scientific and artistic material as prompts for thinking and generating movement and spoken word, Fellows will be encouraged to draw upon their individual artistic and cultural backgrounds, practices, and climate experiences during the creative process. The final performance will give voice to these individual backgrounds and experiences, which we hope will yield a unique cultural expression of art.
