Field Studies, spearheaded by Schwadron in cahoots with core members, is a creative development lab designed for emerging dance artist-scholars to workshop new projects with peer mentorship. Over the course of three-days, up to ten participants engage in independent and collaborative studio practice that culminates in public performance and discussion. All the while, Writing Cafes support the advancement of individual publishing agendas at the intersection of scholarship and artistic practice.
"The importance of Schwadron's gathering goes beyond the individual choreographic work. The evening is a conversation, an exploration between dancers whose work shares certain aesthetics and values while differing in focus and content. Such artistic conversations should not be undervalued."
