Choreographic Fellow | October 5 – 11, 2008 • December 1 – 12, 2008
In preparation for her 10th anniversary retrospective, Rhoads designed a two-part residency to investigate the phenomenon surrounding sampling and pirating of art through discussions with colleagues and researchers in other fields. “I am interested in unpacking the pervasive and popular idea that direct appropriation is a vehicle to make something transformative and not something that’s off limits anymore.”
During her residency, Rhoads discussed Cyberlaw, piracy, appropriation, and intellectual property issues with students, faculty and FSU scholars to feed the work. After the second residency with the full cast, she also shared and examined the work-in-progress with local audiences.
Punk Yankees premiered in October 2009 at the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago.
Collaborators in Residence: Jon Sherman [Dramaturge], Lia Bonfiliio, Asimina Chremos, Robbie Cook, Jenny Meek and Meghann Wilkinson [Lucky Plush Production dancers]
