This August 17-20, 2020, the International Interdisciplinary Artist Consortium (IIAC) took the 9th annual IIAC residency online, in light of the current pandemic. A core group of participants from Brazil, Germany, Honduras, Mexico, North Macedonia, Serbia and the U.S. gathered to continue a line of research into creating, teaching and producing interdisciplinary performance work within the current time and while making use of online platforms. Earthdance continued in its role of supporter for the residency, providing use of its zoom.
From August 21-23, 19 of the artists offered 18 online workshops during the Moving Arts Lab 2020 – Online Edition, a festival meeting ground for interdisciplinary exploration. For this year’s version of the lab, we invite you to gather online to investigate and experience ways that movement, sound, image, and performance can inform human culture, while responding to the current moment. With multiple workshops each day, teaching artists from the International Interdisciplinary Artists Consortium (IIAC) create an embodied, if even virtual, dialogue at the intersection of modalities—voice, movement, activism, site-specific performance, drawing, physical theater, and more.

I know what you’re thinking….we have all Zoomed WAY TOO MUCH!! And you’re right. But—there are some pretty interesting things we can create in this medium. And these experiments, can be enlightening to our embodied practices as artists and help us fine tune certain details. Join this revolutionary moment with your own revolutionary acts. Explore things you have never dared to try before, and make a performance unlike anything you could have imagined. You can’t go wrong! In this workshop, we’ll be working (with scores, instructions, dares); playing (inside and outside); experimenting with all viewpoints; creating, reporting back, breaking out, doing it again and presenting….SOMETHING NEW (and if you want, something borrowed or blue…it’s all up to you).
