Jennifer Archibald, Choreographer & Artistic Director on ‘What it means to be a woman’

Jennifer Archibald, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Arch Dance Company, is set to premiere her new work for Nashville Ballet as part of their ‘Other Voices’ programme.

Other Voices brings together four renowned choreographers to create new works that explore gender.

Nashville Ballet Artistic Director Paul Vasterling set 4 questions for the choreographers:

– what does it mean to be a man
– what does it mean to be a woman
– what does it mean to be both
– what does it mean to be neither

In this podcast, Jennifer talks about how she created work in response to: ‘what does it mean to be a woman’, plus she describes her process for working with dancers.
