2020-2021 Performance Season

The Dance season for 2020-2021 is supported in large part by a generous grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. Through this season’s programming, VCUarts Dance will hold space for students, faculty, collaborators, and audiences to engage with the meaning and value of dance when the studio and stage may be closed to us. Season events will include virtual screenings and discussions, site-based performance, and a creative residency series for individual artists from the Richmond community at the Grace Street Theater.

VCUarts Dance + Choreography kicks off its 2020-2021 season with a virtual screening of Katherine Helen Fisher’s film Finite & Infinite Games, plus her short, CEILING. Follow this page for screening details/logistics.
An interdisciplinary dance film, Finite & Infinite Games is a celebration of unity and color. Filmed at Judson Memorial Church in 2010 and premiered at Art Basel Switzerland, Games draws inspiration from philosopher James P. Carse’s “Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility.” The suite of nine dances, directed and choreographed by Katherine Helen Fisher, explore the individual’s quest for generativity within community.
