PERFORMANCES

approval process - Directed by Rebecca Fitton and co-created and performed by Zoe Huey, Emily Hansel, Melissa Lewis Wong, and Lawrence Tome

approval process ruminates on the interwoven intimacies of co-creating a budget. Budgets are often understood to be complicated matrixes representing an immobile, hypercapitalist bottom line. This work seeks to unravel and humanize this narrative by celebrating budgets as choreographies of expansive care for those implicated in its line items.

The Space In Between - Choreographed and performed by Cherie Hill, with dance and performance by Andreína Maldonado and video art by Leslie Foster.

The Space In Between examines the challenges, intimacy, and societal repercussions of distance. During the pandemic, social distancing expanded and caused significant impacts on our culture, including shifting the ways we work and communicate. In this multi-media dance piece and incubator for processing grief and distance, the artists investigate how one reconciles historical and contemporary separation.

Partial View - Directed by Hope Mohr. Co-created and performed by Rosemary Hannon, Belinda He, and Hope Mohr

What does it mean to perform process? How can we render embodied research transparent to others? Partial View is an improvised duet exploring sustained, shifting relationships and the tensions in honoring both somatic experience and the performance context.

ABOUT Dancing Distributed Leadership

The Dancing Distributed Leadership project explores shared leadership through choreography, performance, and community engagement. The work explores balancing individual voice, deep listening, collective authorship, and an embodied study of different experiences. Public sharing includes live and virtual evening-length performances paired with audience dialogues; public conversation and movement workshops on shared leadership in dance; open rehearsals; writings; and resources. The project is choreographed and led by an intergenerational, inter-disabled, multi-racial team composed of current and past B.L.A. leaders with diverse experiences and perspectives. Rebecca Fitton is a disabled improvisational dance-maker, audio describer, and B.L.A.’s newest Co-Director; Cherie Hill is a choreographer who creates works inspired by the African Diaspora, nature, and feminism (B.LA. Co-Director since 2020); and Hope Mohr is a choreographer working across dance, drawing, and language who transitioned out of Co-Directorship in 2023. Each brings their own aesthetic interests and choreographic processes to this shared creation.
