Past Martha's Artist Salons

Boston Center for the Arts’ community-led conversation, Martha’s Artist Salon is a place for Boston area dancers and fans of dance to connect and engage in productive discussion about performance-based art of the past and today. Martha’s was sparked from members of the community looking for the opportunity to share knowledge, experience, and inspiration about contemporary dance as it is practiced and presented around the world.

Each session is led by a host who offers a short presentation identifying an idea or exemplar they feel is important to understanding why dance looks like it does today. Past presentations have explored the work and influence of Bill T. Jones, Ivo Dimchev, Mats Ek and Merce Cunningham.

Martha’s Salon is organized by Andrea Blesso Albuquerque, BCA; Lorraine Chapman, LCTC; and David Henry, ICA.

David’s gathering will feature sections of Last Supper at Uncle Tom’s Cabin/52 Handsome Nudes and Still Here by the Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. He will use these two works to explore how text and media infiltrated dance (and the visual arts world) along with issues of identity. We will discuss some of the reasons for and ongoing influence of this more theatrical/issue-oriented focus.
