Boston Center for the Arts’ artist-led Salon Series, Martha’s is a community conversation, created to give Boston area dancers and choreographers an avenue to share knowledge about contemporary dance as it is practiced and presented around the world. Each session is led by a host who offers a short presentation identifying an idea or exemplar that they feel is important to understanding why dance looks like it does today.
We are looking for hosts for the fall season. If you are interested, please send a proposal listing:
What or who you would like to present
An outline of your presentation
Why this topic is critical to our understanding of contemporary dance
Which session date(s) you would like to host
Martha’s Salons take place at Boston Center for the Arts on Mondays or Tuesdays between 5:30 and 8 pm. Presentations typically run from 6:00-7:00 with mingling time before and after.
We are currently looking for Fall hosts on Monday September 12, Monday October 24 and Tuesday November 29, 2016
Past presentation topics have included Bill T. Jones, Ivo Dimchev, Percussive Dance and Merce Cunningham.
