Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: This 8-12 week collaborative dance-based project includes several in-school performances, after-school or Saturday classes & a final performance featuring Collinwood school children. Through the residency, Inlet will work with students to engage them in the process of dance learning & making. Additionally, there is a partnership w/Collinwood resident & photographer Stephen Bivens, who will capture the artistic process on film to be displayed in a gallery opening the night of the student & company performance. Bivens will also spend 1 session providing students an overview of the photographic process. The thematic topic of the performance will incorporate aspects of Collinwood's history as a community & its role within Greater Cleveland.
Community Engagement Strategy: Besides the students, this will attract many residents to the final performance to view the finished product. We aim to also involve local business owners to conduct classes & performance in under-utilized spaces.
