First Artistic Residency at the Braswell Arts Center
I am so proud to present images from our FIRST Artistic Residency at the Braswell Arts Center! We presented the wonderful Roderick George/KnoName Artist and it was a GREAT show.
Taking influences from classical ballet, hiphop and breakdance, and modern dance, Roderick George contemplates race relations, being an immigrant, and challenges the status quo in his new piece, Fleshless Beast. Collaborating with artist LOTIC, both from Houston, Texas, they deconstruct their understandings of race, globalization, and their personal experiences through dance and music. George’s work, Dust, debuted at the Tanztage Berlin 2016.
Braswell Arts Center Artist Residency Program
Your new Opera. Your new piece for string quartet. Your new solo Dance piece. Your new play. Your new sculpture or painting. Created in peace and surrounded by good energy. Supporting artists by providing a space and means to create a new work in all art forms.
The Braswell Arts Center Artist Residency Program will offer a professional arts space to artists, to create, rehearse and perform in Basel. A fresh initiative, offering development and performance opportunities while providing support for emerging or established artists. In collaboration with Basel-Stadt, Basel-Land, corporations, foundations and the public, we hope to create a mentorship through free rehearsal and performance space and providing resources and support. A chance to focus on making their best work. We aspire to provide quality performances for the public at the end of the program and, by doing that, encouraging and nurturing a new audience who might not have been exposed to the arts otherwise.
