On this episode your co-hosts Martheya and Reyna interview Jordan Fuchs. Fuchs is a choreographer, performer and a Professor of Dance at Texas Woman’s University. His choreography for stage and screen is grounded in improvisational practice, specifically the bias towards disorientation, sensation and process of contact improvisation, a movement form he has been practicing for more than 25 years. He utilizes the aesthetic values of improvisation to find the instability of each performance moment and the possibility of transformation through sensation. A Fulbright Specialist, he has received commissions from venues including, Danspace Project in NYC, and his work has been presented nationally and internationally. Fuchs is the founder of the annual Texas Dance Improvisation Festival. On this episode, we talk about starting an improvisation festival for dance, leveraging resources you have, how to create dance culture as a space for exchange, strategies for staying connected to the dance world, using Facebook groups in dance-making process for integrating documentation and communication, curating publicity content for a university dance department, and new ways of learning dance in the digital world.
