Critical Connections in the Pod and Beyond: an Interview with Complex Movements

November 12, 2015

Excerpt (from Ill): “We wanted to shake up the paradigm of spectator/spectacle and performer/audience by giving the audience agency in playing a role in this narrative. It’s important to us because it reflects how we make our work as a collective – moving away from the traditional hierarchies in the art and music industries that consist of a lead artist or lead singer. All of us have very specific strengths that we bring to the process, but we also need that creative synergy. And then we ask how that applies to movement building. Often there’s this traditional leadership hierarchy that is perpetuated in movement spaces. This project is a low risk space and a fun and engaging way to challenge those hierarchies and practice collective problem solving.”
