DIYdancer presents UnSequenced, a podcast in which we get inside a choreographer's head and discover the stories and emotions behind a particular work.
New York-based choreographer Ariel Lembeck's work “brilliant you” doesn’t feature any physical dancing. The installation premiered in the backyard of Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn September 2021.
Choreographer Carrie Ahern and her cast of five dancers explore how women express themselves sexually through movement and storytelling in work “Carnal Spill,” performed in private homes throughout New York City.
Fascinated by the patterns and politics of crowds, Sarah Friedland choreographed and directed CROWDS, a three-channel video installation. Friedland presented CROWDS as an in-person experience in 2019 at La MaMa Galleria as part of Performa19 and the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Then in 2021, she presented it digitally at the University of Rochester and American Dance Festival.
In summer of 2021, choreographer Eugenia Zinovieva premiered a new work on the company she danced with at the time, Festival Ballet Providence in Rhode Island. Ad Infinitum builds on questions she's had about human behavior for years.
Choreographer Colleen Thomas’s work “Light and Desire” draws on themes of family history, social politics and her own experiences. She also calls it “an act of resistance,” pushing back against oppressive forces. It eventually debuted at New York Live Arts in September 2021 after pandemic-related delays.
