D. Chase Angier, Artist in Residence, April 2023

Bunnell Street Arts Center welcomes interdisciplinary choreographer D. Chase Angier, April 2 – 30th. She will provide an artist talk on April 12 and a Movement Workshop on April 14 & 15 at Bunnell.

Angier creates performances for visual art and theater venues as well as public sites. These intuitively driven works are created in collaboration with dynamic artists across disciplines. While in residency in Homer she will conduct research for new place-based works inspired by the landscape of Homer, and community members who participate in her free workshop. Her choreographic research is fueled by questions: “What can I learn about the landscape specific to Homer through walking? In what ways can I work with the Homer community to learn about the landscape through their lived experience and knowledge? How can I create work that connects the Homer landscape with other communities outside of Alaska in a way that is transformative for audiences not able to be in Homer?

While in residence at Bunnell, Chase will conduct research for new work.

Alaska AIR Artist Talks & Dinner: Friday, April 12 at 6 pm – Artists Libby Meyer, Andrew O’Connor and D. Chase Angier each share a 20-minute slidetalk about their work. Talks followed by soup, salad and bread with community members.

Movement Workshop with D. Chase Angier: Sunday, April 14 from 3-5 pm AND Monday, April 15, from 6-8 pm, $25  Participants will explore movement concepts, walking research, and how to generate short movement compositions from our explorations. No dance experience necessary. Wear comfortable layers, and bring a journal to reflect in. This is a 2-day workshop, as the second day builds on what we learn on the first day.

Bio: Angier lectures, teaches workshops and works internationally as an interdisciplinary artist. She is a Professor of Dance in the School of Art and Design + Performing Arts Division at Alfred University in New York State. She is the Artistic Director of Angier Performance Works. Angier Performance Works are created in collaboration with artists in the visual, scenographic and performing arts and have been exhibited internationally (Japan, Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, The United Kingdom, Iceland, France) and nationally in theaters, galleries, and visually inspiring sites. These movement-based performances, often situated in non-theatrical settings, explore questions of interconnectivity creating visually textured and feeling-forward performative works.

This program is made possible with a Healthy Communities: Arts, Culture, Play grant from the Alaska Community Foundation, as well as Bunnell members like you.
