February 22, 2021
Hosted by Orb
How are live entertainers such as dancers adapting and thriving in the virtual space? What are the challenges? What are the opportunities that technology offers? What does this mean for the future of dance? In this episode of Planet Classroom, we hear from leading dancers at the Martha Graham Dance Company as well as the Company's Artistic Director Janet Eilber. All talk about their experiences performing the iconic ballet Appalachian Spring and how they have adapted and innovated through the Covid 19 pandemic.
