Announcing: “Transpositions: dance poems for an online world” (Fall 2020)

August 24, 2020

The Dance Lab is excited to announce our coming project: “Transpositions: dance poems for an online world” (Fall 2020)


This fall, Yale Dance Lab in partnership with the Schwarzman Center has invited fifteen different choreographers to create digital dance poems, performed by dancers from across the Yale dance community. With choreographers drawn from Yale faculty, New Haven, Philadelphia, New York, Burkina Faso, and South Africa, the final poems will be edited by Kyla Arsadjaja MFA '20 and shared both online and on display at the Schwarzman Center. Knitting together local, national, and international communities of dance, "Transpositions" explores the continuous and interrupted transmission of embodied dance practices in digital life.


Stay tuned for more information on how dance groups can become involved! Contact Emily Coates with questions.
