On June 24, 2018, The Dancer-Citizen presented a single day, multiple site, live-streamed dance event: The Dancer-Citizen Live 2018: MOVING THE MAP
Contributors to the first five issues of The Dancer-Citizen were invited into a collaborative process with the journal toward the development of this live, curated event, with the aim of more deeply exploring themes generated by the journal issues.
Hosted by editor Julie B. Johnson in Atlanta, and with live feed originating from New York City and Los Angeles in the US, and Hamburg, Germany, MOVING THE MAP invited audiences both on-site and on-line to performances, workshops, and discussion. Sequential scheduling allowed audiences to move among events or stay engaged with one site; the full event is now available here.
