How do you make dance?

A new series of conversations focussed on the nuts and bolts of dance-making with local, national and international makers.

This weeks conversation is with DAYNA HANSON who is in town to show her film Improvement Club this Wed at 7pm at Trylon Microcinema.

Choreographer and multidisciplinary artist Dayna Hanson has been creating hybrid performance and dance in Seattle for more than 25 years. She is also a filmmaker: Her first feature film, Improvement Club, a semi-fictionalized adaptation of her 2010 dance theater piece, Gloria’s Cause, premiered in Narrative Competition at South by Southwest Film Festival in 2013. Hanson was a founding member of the interdisciplinary performance group Run/Remain. She co-founded internationally acclaimed dance theater company 33 Fainting Spells, and continues to build some of the most provocative and uniquely crafted dance-theater hybrids in the contemporary art scene today. She is a 2006 Guggenheim Fellow in Choreography, a 2010 United States Artists Oliver Fellow in Dance and a 2012 recipient of Artist Trust’s Arts Innovator Award.

The conversation will take place at Olive and Otto’s home.
