A Choreo Score for Imagining a Hybrid Reality

How do we inspire, create, and lead during a time of crisis and revolution? 


In this moment we do not know when we will be able to return to collaborating and practicing in-person. Due to the amount of unknowns surrounding public health, we need to pause to take in the current environment and pivot to emerge with creative plans to inspire, create, and lead in our near-future hybrid realty that blends remote, online, and in-person experiences. How do we plan for the unknown? 

Before we enter a new planing process, we need to pause and pivot our thinking and imagination. From within the limitations imposed for public health, we collectively return to our core values and foundational practices.  CTC is guided by 3 core values: Developmental Process, Essential Poetics, and Dharma Art. In this moment we return to our contemplative practices and continue to investigate intersections of contemplative practice, creating work, and personal artistic development via remote and online platforms.
