Interview with Elisabeth Schilling
Before each platform we ask our participating artists to reflect on a few questions about their work and about their participation with Kaleidoscopic Arts. We then film an interview with them on the performance day and you can find interviews with Feet off the Ground Dance, Helen Cox, Jayne Port and Lucidez Dance from our last platform over on our Vimeo channel.
However, Elisabeth Schilling, who presented the photography exhibition STADTKÖRPER, which she curated and co-created with a group of photographers, flew into the performance later in the evening and so we didn’t get a chance to film an interview. We didn’t want to miss a chance to catch up with her though and so you can now read her thoughts right here! Continue reading “Reflections on your work and its presentations”

When seeking equality it is important to keep one’s discourse open to outside opinions so as to see things – in this case Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform – from multiple perspectives. This both strengthens our understanding of our own thinking and lets us consider questions we may not otherwise ask.
In the spirit of equality I’ve asked a few men in the dance community to give their opinion on the state of equality with choreographers, and Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform’s mission.
Here is the first of several interviews done with that different perspective in mind. Our first featured choreographer is Andrew Pearson – L.A. based choreographer and dancer. Continue reading “A different perspective”
Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to sit in on some creative industry talks as a media volunteer for Zealous X – an arts festival featuring musicians, designers, actors, painters and many more.
The panel discussions seemed to naturally circulate around the idea of collaboration and education within the creative industry. Looking back, there were several points made that can be used by anyone in the arts, so with our third network meeting coming up it seems appropriate that I at least pose some of the opinions and questions brought up in hopes of continuing the discussion and getting us all thinking about our decisions within the eclectic industry of art.
