Regina Carli, Alexandra McKeon, Nia-Amina Minor, Katie Jo Turk: UCI Digital Dance Project

Regina Carli, Alexandra McKeon, Nia-Amina Minor, Katie Jo Turk (UC Irvine): $5,000 for UCI Digital Dance Project. Graduate Arts Grants

The UCI Digital Dance Project, comprised of four MFA graduate students in the Dance Department at UC Irvine, has the unique opportunity to participate in an international collaborative arts festival, entitled The Crisis Art Festival, in Arezzo, Italy at the Accademia deli’Arte July 3-9, 2013. The members of this collective are Regina Carli, Alexandra McKeon, Nia-Amina Minor, and Katie Jo Turk. They have been invited to present a 45-minute new work, lead two workshops, give a lecture presentation, participate in workshops led by other festival attendees, and work with artists and activists to create a collaborative piece. This project seeks to expand the boundaries of art by exploring and sharing new methods in dance and digital technology, while connecting to a global community of artists, activists, and scholars. The students will use this opportunity to expand the research ideas and concepts that will inform their graduate thesis projects, which will be completed upon return to UC Irvine in the 2013-2014 academic year.
