WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A Conversation with Reggie Watts and Heather Kravas as part of Festival of Ideas for a New City Working in dance and technologically-enabled comedic performance, Reggie Watts and Heather Kravas are hailed as multidisciplinary innovators in their respective spheres. RadioPlay, Watts's current collaboration with Tommy Smith, remixes historical radio dramas of yesteryear to produce a contemporary sonic hybrid. Kravas's The Green Surround emulates traditional balletic forms in an endeavor to transform them, offering a critical commentary on the language of classicism. Rhythm and Repetition: Reconfiguring Performance Practice Across Genres brings together Watts and Kravas to discuss the intersections in their most recent work, and their respective methods for envisioning new models of practice. Moderated by Jenn Joy.
