Dance Guest Artist Series: Melinda Ring
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Melinda Ring presents her work as part of the Dance Guest Artist Series.
Melinda Ring ‘01 creates dances, performance pieces, videos, and installations. In 2004 she founded the production company Special Projects. “I’m engaged in an on-going experiment, examining choreographic conventions, stripping away various things that usually support a performance. Recent works have been made through a highly collaborative process with the performers, involving destabilization, defamiliarization, de-authoring, and transmission. Having allowed myself the freedom to move between mediums, as visual artists often do, I follow threads within the dance-making process towards the creation of body-based pieces in other forms—including installation, performance, video, and drawing—towards generating a body of related work”.
