Members of acclaimed Brooklyn-based dance company Urban Bush Women sit down with Andrea Woods-Valdes (Chair of the Duke Dance Program) for a free public Zoom discussion focused on Artist Journal, the company’s virtual presentation model. Through performance, conversation, and dance party, the Artist Journal seeks to collapse the distance between artist and audience during the COVID pandemic as well as offer a platform for navigating discomfort, healing, and visioning in relation to the survival and progression of people of color.
