Up a steep and very narrow stairway.

These CDF Salons are becoming quite the habit; the broad variety of folks that show up usually can’t wait to get their discussion on, trade theories and bounce ideas around. This Monday (May 18) should be no different, when Silverspace opens its doors to curator/performer/teacher/iLAND Artistic Director Jennifer Monson, who will share her studies of environmental systems and the choreographic processes they generate. Specifically attuned to “our interactions with the natural and built environments we inhabit,” Monson walks the interdisciplinary walk not just among humans, but the animal kingdom as well (her decade-long work underway BIRD BRAIN includes, among other things, series of events following the migratory paths of a variety of fauna).

Too lengthy to recount here, check out her bio for an absolutely mind-boggling list of fellowships and grants she’s been awarded and her myriad points of involvement with the global dance community. You’d be foolish to miss hearing what she has to say, so don’t. 7-9pm, free, BYOB, RSVP to silverspacedance (at) gmail (dot) com.
