re:research is a two-week professional development platform for self-identifying emerging dance artists interested in choreographic research, collaboration and non-product based exploration.
It’s a space to work on how you work, experiment, engage in creation-based discussions, and learn about YOUR process. re:research is open to choreographers, dance artists, movement makers, and collectives from any style of dance, movement practice, and/or background.
Facilitation: Seika Boye & Heidi Strauss
Producer:  Jane-Alison McKinney
"re:research was a pivotal experience where 
I gained priceless knowledge about the way 
I work as well as what I need in order to 
create work with myself and others.
"  
Jesse Garon,  2019

"re:research is a dive into the deep end 
with a dream team of life guards cheering
you on. It is a safe space to work in an 
extremely focused way while being encouraged
to ask all the questions that litter your 
journals and keep you up at night
.”
Alyssa Martin, 2018
