Join choreographer and dancer Hope Boykin and four dancers for a showing that invites us into Hope’s process as an Artist in Residence at Chautauqua. During her three-week residency, Hope will be creating projects which involve original writing, including work on a new piece for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago this fall. During the residency, poet Mahogany L. Browne will be working with Hope as a “script midwife” as Hope dives deep into the context of States of Hope (her working title). This informal showing will include previously choreographed works and a look at movement in process and conversation with the creator in the beautiful Strohl Art Gallery. The Gallery Store will also be open, featuring new artists and handmade items for Fall. This residency is presented in partnership with Works & Process at the Guggenheim.
