Cross-Fertilization Program

Cross-Fertilization is inspired by cross-genre community networking projects. Small scale projects build relationships between practitioners of different artistic genres or disciplines, stimulate creativity and challenge assumptions by sharing the generation of creative work. For example, in 2016-2017, three Dance Action Group members and the Artistic Director worked with theatre artist Eric Rose in an exploration of creative possibilities arising from British playwright Caryl Churchill’s play Hotel. Cross- Fertilization supports the artist’s need for new perspectives, serves to break barriers between forms, develops richer language and thinking and can seed a future project.
