Talk: Dancing Behind the Curtain

Event will be held in the Community Room

Meet three of the cloaked dancers featured in Rodney McMillian’s video Untitled (Neighbors)—Edward Carr, James Fuller, and Jordan Moser—as they share their experiences performing for the camera.

Stephen Mills, artistic director for Ballet Austin, facilitates this conversation with these company dancers as they interpret the movement language of the video, consider an embodied perspective of McMillian's exhibition Against a Civic Death, and reflect on collaborating across disciplines with other artists.
