Moving Arts Lab 2021: an online festival for interdisciplinary exploration

Facilitated by Peter Sciscioli

July 23, 2021 - 10:00am to July 25, 2021 - 4:30pm

Programming category: 


For this year's version of the lab, we once again invite you to gather online to investigate and experience ways that movement, sound, image, and performance can inform human culture, while responding to the current moment. With multiple workshops each day, teaching artists from the International Interdisciplinary Artists Consortium (IIAC) create an embodied, if even virtual, dialogue at the intersection of modalities—voice, movement, activism, site-specific performance, drawing, physical theater, and more. Open to all levels and backgrounds.

2021 Teaching Artists coming SOON!

What is IIAC?
The International Interdisciplinary Artists Consortium (IIAC) is a network of performing and creative artists, educators, and producers working across artistic disciplines and continental divides. The body and movement are central to the consortium’s practice, research, and dialogue. IIAC's primary aspirations are: 1) To engage in artists' residencies that offer opportunities for knowledge exchange which feed into larger social, cultural, and educational structures (i.e. workshops, festivals, and academia); 2) To identify and sustain methods for sharing resources and values; 3) To expand a network of partners. Established in 2012 by Brooklyn-based performer, creator, educator, and producer, Peter Sciscioli, IIAC has since grown to include over 60 artists living and/or working in such countries as Australia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, Curaçao, England, Finland, Guåhan, Honduras, Israel, Italy, Japan, North Macedonia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Serbia, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, and Uruguay, and from within the U.S. in states including California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Peter Sciscioli (facilitator) is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary performer, creator, educator, and producer whose work encompasses dance, music, theater, and film. Since 1997 he has been creating performance works through a choreographic lens with a wide variety of collaborators for concert, site-specific, and theater venues around the world. In 2008, he created Peter Sciscioli Performance Projects, and in 2012 founded the International Interdisciplinary Artists Consortium, a network of artists and producers working across disciplines and cultures. As a performer, he has worked extensively with Meredith Monk, Jane Comfort, and Daria Faïn, and appeared in work by Jonathan Bepler/Matthew Barney, Ping Chong, DD Dorvillier, Susan Marshall, and Philip Glass/Mary Zimmerman, among others. He has taught his approach to Voice as Movement in countries from Mexico to North Macedonia, co-initiated The Sounding Body workshop series at Movement Research (MR) in New York, and offers private lessons and coachings. Peter has been honored to receive support from MR’s Global Practice Sharing (GPS)  program to attend meetings with partners in Eastern Europe and the Caucuses, and to help bring several artists from the region to the U.S. to participate in IIAC and Moving Arts Lab at Earthdance.
