Annie Hanauer et Marie Alexis
This project will be an exchange of experience and research between two practicing neurodivergent/disabled dance artists, and will focus on choreographic process as well as inclusive work. We will look at developing structures of collaboration & communication that welcome neurodiversity, creating work spaces that welcome neurodivergent & disabled artists, and how to deepen artistic language and methods to support this accessible approach. This exchange will also support artistic research, and Marie’s current focus of developing her own artistic language as well as working structures that fit the demands of a life with autism, while sharing the beauty of it. We expect the project to include in-person meetings and online conversations, and choreographic feedback.This project sits within the nexus of choreographic research, inclusive dance practice, and advocacy.
