Velocity partnered with On the Boards in a celebration of master American choroeographer Tere O’Connor, hosting performances of his seminal works BLEED, poem, Secret Mary, and Sister. As part of this educational/community partnership, Velocity and OtB hosted Irreconcilability, a series of activities focused on O’Connor’s influential views on dance and contemporary culture. Irreconcilability was curated by Velocity Artistic Director Tonya Lockyer with Tere O’Connor. Irreconcilability culminated in a Community Forum with O’Connor, hosted at Velocity. View below the footage of the engaging and enlightening talk that resulted.
