Creating New Stages
1:00pm - 1:50pm
Featuring: Holly Treddnick, Annie Dugan, Karine Lavoie, Vanessa Furlong
Moderated by Ruth Wikler
With the return to normalcy in sight, artists reflect on what this past year taught them and what lessons they will apply to their craft moving forward. From embracing the art of the pivot to harnessing new technologies and ways to radically collaborate, the way performers connect with audiences, and one another, has been altered in many ways. Our panelists reveal what will emerge in this next stage.
