Driven by our goal to cultivate and nurture artistically motivated social engagement, we at STANCE are aware of the treasures often found in reaching outside ourselves. Artistry does not thrive in isolation, and neither does discussion. Our age of technology puts a wealth of perspectives at our literal fingertips, providing a multitude of sparks to prompt or continue discussions and engagement. Conversation, Information, and Inspiration are scattered across the web: here are a few spaces that the STANCE team found intriguing this week. What do these voices spark for you? What online gems have you been finding?
dance-tech project explores the potential of the new Internet technologies for knowledge production and distribution on body based artistic practices and its intersections with other disciplines such as new media, architecture, philosophy, anthropology and more. dance-tech.net provides movement and new media artists, theorists, thinkers, and technologists the possibility of sharing work, ideas and research, generating opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative projects.

MANCC (pronounced man-see) is the only national center for choreography in the world located in a major research institution, and operates from one of the premiere dance facilities in the United States. The Center is embedded within The Florida State University School of Dance, and offers unparalleled opportunities for contemporary choreographers to hone their artistic practice and develop new work inside a creative community. MANCC provides development residencies for choreographers and their collaborators to develop new work. Artists are encouraged to bring with them dancers, designers, dramaturges, composers, and other appropriate collaborators that would enhance their creative inquiry through physical, conceptual, experiential or scientific means. MANCC works closely with artists to craft engaging and intimate moments of reflection with targeted audiences to further ideas and concepts being explored while in residence. By focusing engagement efforts on research in development and creative process, they seek to build work and audiences simultaneously through a framework called Entrypoints.
