This spring, artists and their collaborators will develop new projects during BAC Space, a residency period that encourages peer exchange by hosting multiple artists in BAC's studios and theaters concurrently.
On April 12, BAC Space artists invite audiences into the studio for a glimpse of the creative process and an opportunity to see works in varying stages of development.
APR 12 / THU

12PM / John Cage & Merce Cunningham Studio
Project: Choreographer RoseAnne Spradlin is developing a new work exploring the possibility of internal exhaustion, the dancer’s drive toward self-exposure, and the cycling of the form through apogee and perigee.
1PM / Christina Sterner Studio
Project: Choreographer Jimena Paz’s research is focused on the urge to move within and around opinions of foreignness, an urge rooted in the untrained body.

Project: Choreographer Ligia Lewis is using melodrama as a point of departure for Water Will (in Melody), a devised choreographic work for three performers.
5PM / Rudolf Nureyev Studio
