She has choreographed and produced four seasons of circus-infused dance and has presented work at venues throughout NYC.
In our discussion, we talk about the challenges of getting approved for specific grants and pursuing the avenue toward financial stability that is right for your unique artistic circumstances. For those artists looking to better understand how to approach a successful grant funding campaign, this discussion is for you!
Veiled Unveilings, the latest Above and Beyond Dance project will premiere on Friday, May 5as part of A Length of Rope at The Muse Brooklyn. For this creation, Artistic Director Chriselle Tidrick uses aerial fabric to explore the internal conflict between concealing and revealing one’s vulnerability. Moments Tidrick spends hidden behind the fabric panel, wrapped within the fabric, or withdrawn into internal focus contrast with moments in which she hangs suspended in the fabric, body exposed, discovering her ability to move upward with strength, grace, and self-assurance. Tickets are priced on a sliding scale– $10 to $25. They are available at: https://themusebrooklyn.com/events/.
