ODC Theater is proud to present This is Also the Art, featuring artists originally scheduled to be produced in ODC Theater’s 2020 season. Join us on Thursdays this fall to see content from the works at variable stages, to hear how artists and their collaborators enliven the works in the liminal times and spaces between performances, and to ask your questions about the continued existence of the pieces offstage.

On Thursday, November 12, Bobbi Jene Smith, director of LOST MOUNTAIN ("impressive... fearless" - NY Times) is joined by artists Keir GoGwilt, Marta Miller, and Or Schraiber, to share a glimpse into their process of collaboration, creation, and meeting in the middle, on a mountain. Lost Mountain was slated for performance in fall 2020 at ODC Theater.

Bobbi Jene Smith was a member of the Batsheva Dance Company from 2005-2014 and is a founding core member of AMOC (American Modern Opera Company). A 2019 recipient of the Harkness Promise award, she has created commissions for CORPUS, ODC Theater, Gibney Dance Company, and Martha Graham Dance Company. She choreographs and stars in the feature films Mari (Georgia Parris) and Aviva (Boaz Yakin).

ODC's Young Patrons Group will be hosting a pre-show Zoom happy hour from 5:00-6:00PM. It'll be a casual gathering to meet other young professionals and dance fans and to hear from This Is Also The Art moderator and ODC Theater's Programming and Operations Manager Chloë Zimberg about Bobbi Jene Smith's work LOST MOUNTAIN before joining the livestream.
