Salon: The Art of Conversation
where ideas are conceived, gestated and hatched

Thursday, November 15th
Core Studios, 139 Sycamore St, Decatur GA
Food provided by White Bull

This event is free, but registration is required.

“if... a memoir” is a new work created by Sue Schroeder in collaboration with the Dance Artists of Core Dance, Christian Meyer (composer), and Simon Gentry (cinematographer) forms the backbone for the Salon. It is a love song written for humanity that engages in questions of human freedom alongside human limitations. A product of artistic questioning and a quest for meaning, If…a memoir seeks to reveal what binds each of us, one to the other, in beauty, flaws, foibles, vulnerability and what it is to be inherently human.

Probing the complexities of our world, Salons are incubators where ideas are conceived, gestated, and hatched. Salons are the frontiers of social and cultural change: they cultivate creativity, revive the art of conversation, and fuel energy to change the world.

In Support of Core Dance
For four decades, Core Dance has supported innovation, collaboration, artistic risk-taking and sustainable art-making in dance. An award-winning contemporary dance organization with global reach, Core Dance creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation with the community. In 1980, Core Dance was co-founded in Houston, Texas by dancer and choreographer Sue Schroeder and her sister, Kathy Russell.  Five years later, the organization added Atlanta, Georgia as a second home base, creating a platform for dance that is relevant in both cities and around the globe. Core Dance uses dance to educate, question and illuminate, and is internationally recognized for its artistically driven research practices, cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary collaborations, the humanity of the individual Dance Artists, and its rigorous physicality.
