Now we’re ALL Artists-in-Residence! 😊
During this time of staying at home, we’d like you to join us in our distance art-making project.
Each week on social media we’ll share prompts and process and invite you to join us in this bird-inspired adventure and our 13th season.
Sarah Bush Dance Project is grateful for our year-long residency with Richardson Bay Audubon Center. Though it won’t look as we had imagined, we are adapting. The dancers are currently trying a new work-from-home process. We start the week with a check-in and discussion of relevant topics. From this we decide on a prompt and assignment for the week. We each do a bird-sit and create movement in our own neighborhoods, then “gather” at the end of the week to develop the material as a group, either in video chats or (when it feels ok to do so) outside with a 6 foot distance between us.
At this early stage in the process we invite you, our community, to participate in this distance art-making. Please take our prompts and make whatever kind of art inspires you: dance, video, photo, music, poetry, spoken word, writing, drawing, animation, painting, sculpture, assemblage, etc, etc.
Or check our Six Foot Wingspan page on our website for the weekly prompts.
Prompt for week of March 30th
Join Sarah Bush Dance Project in a 30 min “bird sit” this week and share a photo, video or text of your response to this prompt:
Spread your wings and find a balance. Fold and unfold your wings. Move slowly while feeling the air.
