As part of their New Museum residency, NIC Kay presents “Dancing for the internet,” a workshop focusing on creative experimentation in movement online.

NIC Kay will facilitate this two-hour workshop that centers self-identified Black people who are interested in experimenting with movement in virtual space, whether to share with community or for each participant’s personal archive. Participants will be asked to consider how point of view, composition, color, and light play important roles in dancing online and translating live choreography for the internet.

This program will be presented online via Zoom, please register here. Capacity for this workshop is limited.
