When it comes to talking about women choreographers in contemporary dance it can be easy to focus solely on identifying problems. Pointing fingers, and raising red flags to inequality is occasionally necessary – after all awareness is the first step to change. However, we here at Kaleidoscopic Arts feel it is just as important to discuss the progress that is occurring within the world of contemporary dance in regards to opportunities for and discussions about female choreographers. We are all fortunate today for the social discussion about women choreographers to even be open. It is through attending new platforms, writing, tweeting, supporting new artists, and holding more discussions that societal norms can evolve. Choreographer, dancer, supporter; whatever you may be the attention to the new positive developments in the scene are going to strengthen the discourse.
That being said here are just some examples that prove our discussion – as a community – is strong. We highly recommend you follow along with these events.
