This is the first in a series of interviews with an already emerged choreographer in order to give a perspective of what lies ahead.
Supporting the positive events occurring in the world of female choreographers reflects the core of Kaleidoscopic Arts. However, the urge to write about them was heavily influenced by an interview we held last week with choreographer T. Lang.
Lang is the artistic director of T. Lang Dance – based in Atlanta, Georgia – and an associate professor at Spelman College. A Graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of The Arts she moved to Atlanta in 2008 after dancing professionally in New York and has been choreographing and developing her company/repertoire ever since.
We sat down to a video call with her to ask about the process of becoming an emerged female choreographer and the obstacles she faced and occasionally still faces today. Here are our questions and briefs of the answers and insights that she gave us.
