10 questions in 10 minutes. Quick insights with the Bay Area dance community.
As our community continues to re-imagine hybrid performance and dance-making, the 10 in 10 interview series speaks to those right in the thick of creating dynamic dance works.
Lydia Clinton brings her bubbly and energetic personality to the virtual space of TikTok, Instagram and performing with Epiphany Dance Theater, PUSH Dance Company, Zaccho Dance Theatre, The Kendra Kimbrough Dance Ensemble and Capacitor.
Javier Stell-Frésquez amplifies and uplifts the Two-spirit community through traditional and experimental performance and practices. “Two-Spirit” is a pan-tribal term—it is rooted in the Anishinaabe term describing such individuals: “niizh manidoowag.” This translates literally as “two spirits”- embodying both the complex feminine and the masculine in all of us. They are the Co-Director of the Weaving Spirits Festival of Two-Spirit Performance that presents performances, workshops, and community circles.
Don’t worry, I still asked them to show us their favorite dance moves. 😉 Enjoy!
