July 3rd: Anne Harris

July 17th+: TBA*

Mark DeGarmo Dance continues its transcultural transdisciplinary Interview Series: Creativity and Creative Practice, featuring an interview with Anne Harris, an American-Australian playwright, dramaturg, videographer, performance poet and academic based in Melbourne. The series consists of short interviews with artists and scholars about their artistic and scholarly work and its responses and applications to the human condition. MDD broadcasts the series on a biweekly basis, Fridays at 1pm ET (U.S.). Dr. Mark DeGarmo is the series’ producer, curator, and interviewer.

The interview series is designed to broaden and deepen understanding of creativity and creative practice across transcultural transdisciplinary fields and domains. The series starts with interviews of practitioners from Argentina, Australia, and the USA across the fields of dance, theater, the performing arts, educational research, and teaching. DeGarmo’s research into creativity as a human birthright shapes the series.

Mark DeGarmo, Ph.D., Founder, Executive and Artistic Director of MDD “hopes that such reflective discourse will contribute to sustaining and expanding artists’ work and creative practices while developing new audiences and deeper public understanding of the roles of The Arts and artists in the U.S.A. and across global cultures. I believe this is a critical time when The Arts and Dance are needed to inform, to educate, to challenge, to heal, to inspire, to bring together, to build community, to lead, and to energize into positive social action, justice, and change.”

Interviews will be posted on the MDD YouTube page biweekly on Fridays at 1pm ET (U.S.).
