About the Panel

“The Great Resignation” or the “Big Quit” is tremendously impacting the American workforce and the concert dance industry has not been immune to this phenomenon. As arts workers’ passions grow, diminish and/or change, how are they renegotiating their boundaries and proximity to art-making?

About the BlackLight Summit

The Clarice’s BlackLight Summit aims to activate the unimagined possibilities in dance–it is a convening that envisions dance as a conduit to galvanize resilience and inventiveness. Returning for a second year, the 2022 summit explores three fundamental inquiries: “What/who are we becoming?” “How do we return to one another?” and “Does progress equal healing?” Throughout the 2021–22 season, the BlackLight Summit will continue to foster community connection by facilitating a series of mentoring and professional development opportunities, conversations and performances.
