Two New Programs from ITE

<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.

Intercontinental Interludes and Shorts

A growing repertoire of performance pieces. Short European gallivants that highlight through choreography and dialect the bombastic, chichi, and delightful. Each piece draws inspiration from a European language and landscape.

These interludes are intended to engage and delight. Refreshing satisfying theatrical nuggets where English becomes exotic to the ear and choreography exhilarates the imagination.

The Interludes were a fantastic close to our 4th season at ITE. We had a great time with Alexandra Bassett and look forward to seeing more from her in the future!

What an Incredible Night!

Sultry singer Janelle Kroll blew the roof off the house on Sunday, May 25th during her 45 minute set. Afterwards audience and artists sat down to a sub-continentally inspired meal as we all said good-bye to spring and hello to summer.
