Summer in Scotland — The “Toolbox” Project
In July 2017, The Seldoms will undertake an exchange project— one dedicated to process and invention. We’ll travel to Glasgow to work with visual artists Fraser Taylor, Frances Lightbound, and filmmaker Callum Rice at House for an Art Lover to build a “Cross-Disciplinary Toolbox”. Our project — to translate visual art tactics into choreographic tactics, and vice versa. Artistic Director Carrie Hanson initiated Toolbox as a way to trouble habitual ways of making. The artists will share creative work, interpret methods and values of our respective disciplines, articulate and explore new tactics. Armed with new tools, we’ll set out to innovate distinctive vocabulary. With Chicago artist and Illinois State Museum curator, Doug Stapleton, along to bridge the visual—kinetic, the study also promises to advance the ensemble’s understanding of the contributions of collaborating designers.
This project made possible by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s International Connections Fund.
