The NMC: True Creative Stories – Autumn Widdoes
February 1, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The New Music Conflagration, Inc. presents a new series, which delves into the creative process of artists working in various mediums who use music as a means of expression or inspiration
Autumn is a teacher, a writer, and a performance/hybrid-theater artist whose work explores the multiple intersections between written and spoken language and movement/dance. She is particularly interested in the transmission of memory, both cultural and personal, as well as temporality and its interconnections to environment and place.
In addition to being an artist, she is a scholar interested in live performance and all things performative. She is also fascinated with film, video, soundscapes and transmedia hybrid works of art. She has developed work through The Field’s FAR Space Residency Grant and has shown or performed in work in NYC at Dixon Place, the Brick Theater, Grace Exhibition Space, Bowery Poetry Club, Galapagos, AUNTS is Dance, Inbred-Hybrid Collective, WAXworks @ Triskelion Arts Center, the 2009 Movement Research Festival (with AUNTS), the &Now Festival of Innovative Art & Literature (Buffalo, NY), The Poetry Cafe of the Poetry Society (London, UK), Subterranean Arthouse (San Francisco, CA), Okinawa Christian University (Okinawa, Japan), and at the Tampa Museum of Art (Five by Five 2014). She is the co-founder and artistic director of TASK 沖縄, a performance collective based in Okinawa, Japan. She received her Masters in Performance Studies from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She co-curated the literary and performance series called New News, which is currently on hiatus.
At this time, Autumn has just returned to Tampa, Florida after living in Okinawa, Japan for four years, where she taught English and Cultural Studies to Japanese high school students and Performance making and Theater for adults.
