Art + Invention Speaker Series (4):
Real Work with Real People: Ann Carlson and Mary Ellen Strom

Ann Carlson and Mary Ellen Strom with Mark Gonnerman

Thursday, April 8, 2010 | 7:30pm | Cubberley Auditorium | Free and Open to All

Dancer and choreographer Ann Carlson and video artist Mary Ellen Strom bring together social, political, historical and formal concerns in their shared work. Their collaborations are notable for their community engagement, experimental form, and technological adventurousness.  In this conversation we will show their work, discuss their creative process, and delve into the Real People series of dance performances that explore the movement of people in a range of professions including lawyers, nuns, basketball players, fly-fishers, and fiddlers.  And we will talk about a Real People dance with university students, professors, and staff members that will be one outcome of their residency at Stanford this spring quarter.
