Abstract

The Dialogical Art project investigates the relevance and significance of artistic processes in community development and preservation. The definition of art can be rather subjective, piquing different interests and eliciting varying emotional responses from the observer or audience member. Regardless if a community member is artistically inclined or particularly drawn to creative processes, they will come in contact with art throughout their human life. The human body is a sacred instrument, a medium of communication, a platform for an artistic voice to be heard and the deepest, most invigorating research that an individual can perform incorporates the exploration of the human body.

Comments

"The Things You Say" is a piece choreographed by Molly Gehrmann and Shannon Shahinian and performed by Alexandra Ditoro, Ainsley Pew, Miller Tennant, and Tiana Thompson. The piece incorporates research that Gehrmann and Shahinian conducted during an internship with Pivot Arts and explores the significance of art within a community. Unfortunately, this piece was to be performed this spring, but was unable to be presented due to the COVID-19 outbreak. An excerpt of the piece during a private rehearsal is included in this presentation.
