Choreographers Project and Masters Exchange with Ralph Lemon

Susan Hess Modern Dance


With a history of over 30 years of serving dancers, choreographers, and performance artists in development of their movement practice, Susan Hess Modern Dance (SHMD) hosted Bessie Award winner Ralph Lemon in a weeklong Masters Exchange residency, investigating choreographic process with the three participant artists of the 2010–11 Choreographers Project. A prolific dance artist and the recipient of an inaugural United States Artists Fellowship in 2006, Lemon's career crosses genres and intercultural interests. He has also developed a significant body of writing and has a strong record of multidisciplinary collaboration. SHMD invited the public to view a select number of the sessions with Lemon to get a glimpse of the choreographic process at work.
