"Rethinking Residencies," the third episode of the webinar series "The Next Stage" organized by the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles and the Western Arts Alliance (WAA) in 2021 to explore the residency’s development in the post-pandemic era in addition to the new sustainable relationship between artists, the environment and the community, will be held at 5 pm on June 23.
In light of the acceleration of technology application in performing arts during the pandemic, the first two episodes, "Creation in Isolation" and "Extending Our Reach - Performance in a Digital Age," featured a diverse panel of artists and producers sharing their journeys.
In continuation to the second episode, the third episode features Taiwanese artist Chou Tung-yen (周東彥), the founder of CAMP_iN Jaciel Neri, Director of Indigenous Arts at BANFF Centre for Arts and Creativity Reneltta Arluk, Artistic Director of Rosie Herrera Dance Theater Rosie Herrera and Artistic Director & Curator of Performance at Portland Institute for Contemporary Art Erin Boberg Doughton. The moderator Christopher K Morgan, the Director of the Dance Residency Program at Art Omi, has previously joined many residency programs as a Native Hawaiian choreographer.
Lasting until November 2021, the webinar series will highlight diverse topics, such as performance creation, cross-genre collaborations, venue innovation, and technology application. This event will be held through Zoom while livestreaming on WAA's YouTube channel and Facebook. All are welcome to register online.
WAA was established in 1967 and its members are mainly performing arts professionals such as artists, managers, agents, and presenters from throughout the Western U.S.
