I wrote an essay about starting my company, Rhizomatic Arts, for the first issue of The Dancer-Citizen, a new peer-reviewed online scholarly journal exploring the work of socially engaged dance artists. I discuss how and why I started my own business to reconcile the disparate aspects of my professional practice, and how our programming is supporting exchange, collaboration, and artist sustainability.
This first issue of The Dancer-Citizen claims "a space for conversation arising from our unique knowledge as dancer/scholars: what do we know about citizenship, belonging and mutual obligation, and how are we using, building on, investigating and challenging this knowledge? How are we working, what are our disparate views and methods, and in what forms are we expressing, embodying, and reporting? What connections are we making, or could we make, with each other and other disciplines?"
