Creative Writing


What is the connection between writing and dance? Can one support the other, harm the other, change the other? Are they separate entities, or do they coexist? As choreographers, we are often asked to describe our works, be it in applications for funding, project proposals or program notes. How can we express a largely nonverbal art form in the written word? How can we wield the written word to further us as artists?

Creative Writing was established to challenge the conventions of writing about dance, on dance, in dance and around dance.

Our three basic functions are:

  • Re:View, an online platform for response to performance, composed by audience members
  • Writer’s Workshop, a meeting in which professionals can improve their writing practice
  • Private Consultations with Ori J. Lenkinski including translation and editing.
