Event Description
Portuguese choreographer João Fiadeiro is in residence at KU from February 15-28 as the first creative specialist hosted by the Spencer Museum's Arts Research Collaboration initiative (ARC). During his two-week stay, Fiadeiro will work intensively with a small group of performers to explore his method of “real-time composition”, in which the choreographer takes on the role of mediator and facilitator, sharing control with his performers-collaborators. This event comprises a “work-in-progress” presentation from the composition workshop, along with a talk by Fiadeiro about his method and Q&A with the artist and performers. This is a qualifying event for students seeking Arts Engagement certification.
