<strong>Chez Bushwick</strong> and <strong>Inception to Exhibition (ITE)</strong> are partnering on <strong>Fieldwork: Purchase College</strong> a new choreographic incubator aimed at the Purchase alumni network. This program includes one-on-one mentorship with established Purchase alumni, a five-day residency at the Chez Bushwick studio as well as fully produced performances at CPR – Center for Performance Research, November 6 & 7, 2014.
<strong>Fieldwork: Purchase College</strong> allows recent graduates of Purchase College to cultivate new relationships with successful and experienced alumni, broaden their personal and professional networks, while fostering a stronger community outside the university setting to enrich the next generation of choreographic talent.
Our <strong>Artistic Development Initiative</strong> also begins this year. We are piloting a new partnership with Arts Management Consultant/Booking Agent Francine Sheffield. She will spend six months working with one of ITE’s affiliated artists to improve their company management or expand booking opportunities. This is a very exciting new program for us and we hope that, if successful, we can bring it to more of our artists in the future.
