SPECIAL SERIES INSPIRED BY THE COVID-19 CRISIS:Play and Creativity in Uncertain Times
We are in a time where it's really hard to think about play and creativity in the conventional ways. Performance venues, movie theaters, events, TV and movie productions are all shut down. We can't take creative classes or laugh with our friends in real life. I have struggled to talk about play in my typical way so I turned to the creative people in my world to learn how they are dealing with time. How has this crisis affected their creativity? How are they rethinking play during this time? What have they learned about themselves that can be relevant to us?
In this conversation
In this conversation I chat with my dear friend and dance teacher, Dexandro Montalvo. Dexandro is an award-winning choreographer and dance teacher in the Bay Area. He shared the perspective of how this crisis is affecting artists, particularly dancers who depend on contracts with dance companies to make a living. We talked about how this crisis is affecting the arts, finding ways to not quit, how urgent situations can help in affirming your purpose and much more.
