Art as Action’s exceptional collective of dancers, poets, musicians, visual artists and aerialists delved into the theme of both/andthrough Art as Action’s one of a kind collaborative framework, The Artivist Process, culminating in an innovative and impactful multi-disciplinary performance.
both/and was an exploration of dichotomies - instead of fixating on either/or, black/white - embracing the gray of our existence and making peace with uncertainty. both/and was our 12th performance created through The Artivist Process.
The Artivist Process distinguishes Art as Action from other performing arts organizations. Made up of monthly brainstorming sessions and in-progress showings, the Process brings together a community of curious, passionate and dedicated people who explore the diverse aspects of the human experience through the theme (both/and), and in turn discover how to impact the community, support each other and produce ground-breaking work.
