SPECIAL RESEARCH PROGRAM 2020-21: In response to the massive push, perhaps tidal wave, to put our practices, processes and artistry online, during the first shockwaves of the Covid-19 pandemic the Choreographic Marathon considered the artistic and aesthetic ramifications and developments that this push instigated for movement artists. Video-podcasts with 25 Toronto-based artists were created and shared over 5 months. This led to an online public forum with over 40 artists, and “embodiment online” workshops.


The goal:

To share and deepen knowledge for continuing artistry on online platforms for movement art creation.


The invitation:

To be active, open, thoughtful. To be conscious within the work, and within the outer situations and environment we were living. To consider what we know, were learning and may learn in this evolutionary time. To try things out together.


Key Considerations included:

Listening with the Body, the places of Imagination, Intuition, Attention and Energy, Connectivity and Connecting through the screen; The Room itself; Knowing and Learning.
