DDP was delighted to host Stefanie Batten Bland this spring as a guest in our first round of Global Conversations interviews. Since we conducted our interview with SBB, the lockdown has ended, and the dance maker/artistic director has gone on to receive multiple virtual commissions from venues, initiatives, and companies eager to produce new works virtually. In a newsletter, Batten Bland wrote, “We continue into our Fall season in such gratitude to bring our work to you virtually – both celebrating the past and pressing onward through our new normal.”
Check out a couple of the trailers for the virtual works, new and old, at the links below and view SBB’s episode of Global Conversations: The Creative Process at the end of this post!
