2023 Choreo-Lab Fellowship

May 30, 2023 June 10, 2023 PDT

The 2023 AXIS Choreo-Lab (“the Lab”) will take place in-person at AXIS’ home base in Berkeley, CA Tuesday, May 30 –  Saturday, June 10 2023! The Lab will be lead by mentors Nadia Adame and Christopher Unpezverde Núñez, with Choreographer Fellows Davian DJ Robinson, Larissa Velez-Jackson, Sammie Murray & Saira Barbaric.

Headshots of four artists, alongside white AXIS & Mellon Foundation logos. Davian Robinson poses orange sweater with a big wide smile. Then, a brightly-lit photo of Larissa from the shoulders up. Larissa has light brown skin and short, curly black hair that curls around their foreheard and ears. They are smiling at the camera with a soft expression. They are wearing a teal shirt with a yellow design, and a green mask with a plaid design hangs off of their left ear. Sammie, a white person in their early 20s, is kneeling on a grey floor with a white wall behind them. They are looking slightly up and to the left. Then, Saira - a queer person with warm brown skin and a green bun - leans one eye toward a candle.

The goal of the AXIS Choreo-Lab Fellowship is to develop, refine and advance the artistic skills of emerging disabled choreographers. The Lab offers an inclusive environment where established, disabled artists mentor the fellows to challenge boundaries and explore perception changing art. During the Lab, participants will be led through a creation process stemming from their own concept, collaborating with an integrated group of performers including AXIS dancers and professional dancers from the local community. The Lab provides studio space, dancers, and administrative support for every choreographer. This opportunity also includes ongoing mentorship and professional development support in the year following the Lab.
