Claudia Schreier: Issues of Equity and Inclusion in Ballet
June 16, 2020
Chamber Dance Project Virtual Chat Series
In this online presentation, choreographer Claudia Schreier discusses the urgent need to cultivate and amplify Black voices in dance, as well as the development of her new work for CDP, Alight.
“The evolving global conversations following the death of George Floyd expose deeply rooted pain and reinforce the need to address vast systemic inequities. The arts are uniquely suited to reveal what societies prioritize and to inspire progress, and therefore it is important to examine how ballet connects to the broader dialogue.” —Claudia Schreier
