Residency

Virtual Residency Performance

Join Deborah Slater Dance Theater and Studio 210 for an evening of dance films by Summer Residents Angela Arteritano & Alyssandra Katherine Dance followed by discussion with the artists!

July 30th & 31st, 6pm - 8pm PT

Virtual Screening; Held on Zoom

This summer’s 8-week residency culminates in a virtual showing exploring themes of identity & viewership, migration & belonging. Both residents will present dance films made in collaboration with Clare Schweitzer which explore the perspectives and experiences of historically marginalized communities.

Drawing from her background in visual art and Traditional Flamenco, Angela Arteritano utilizes an interdisciplinary choreographic practice to generate a multimedia experience which encapsulates the many layers and dualities experienced by the body in migration.

In "The Oriental Woman", Alyssandra Katherine Dance explores the stereotypes and fetishization of Asian women in Western culture and how, historically, Asian women’s identities are strongly defined by the misogynistic white perspective in Occidental countries.

Performances will be followed by discussions with the artists, moderated by award-winning choreographer Deborah Slater.

Closed captions will be available at this event.

This event is held on Zoom, and requires that participants have the Zoom app. Access information will be emailed to ticket holders prior to the event. Ticket sales close 3 hours prior to event start.

Tickets are a suggested donation of $5-$50. Proceeds support the Residency program and Studio 210, helping us continue to offer this opportunity to performing artists throughout the greater Bay Area. If you are unable to donate at this time, but would like to attend, please email residency@deborahslater.org for a free URL to the event.

Angela Arteritano

Angela Arteritano is a Venezuelan multidisciplinary artist, choreographer, and researcher, based in the United States. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art and a Master of Fine Arts in Choreography. Her work deals with issues of migration and identity through an interdisciplinary choreographic practice. With over ten years of experience in traditional Flamenco, she has developed an experimental practice that is rooted in tradition but pursues new ways of understanding. Her multidisciplinary work has been presented in art galleries, performing arts theaters, and alternative spaces throughout the United States and internationally. Some of these spaces include The Miramar Cultural Center; Bayou Theater, Match Theater; Texas State Galleries; Denton Arts Center; among others. Additionally, her work has been recognized and supported by various non-profit organizations and institutions, including the local recognition of 2021 Cultural Power Grant Awardee by San Jose’s leading Latinx Art Organization – MACLA. With this recognition Arteritano is set up to begin creating new work in the bay area and is excited to start sharing her processes with her new surrounding communities.

Alyssandra Katherine Dance

Alyssandra Katherine Wu is a freelance choreographer, dancer, and instructor whose works reference social issues that are current, relevant, and deeply personal. She is especially concerned with subjects such as deracination, gender ascription, and accessibility and her dance pieces often investigate her perspective and personal relationship to these topics. Alyssandra’s work draws from her cultural knowledge of her Chinese heritage and uses multimedia sources such as video and visual arts media. Alyssandra currently holds a Masters in Dance from London Contemporary Dance School and a Bachelors in World Arts & Culture/Dance from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has danced for several well-known choreographers, including Victoria Marks, Cheng-Chieh Yu, Michel Kouakou, Ros Warby, Jorge Crecis, and Darren Ellis. Since her relocation to the Bay Area, Alyssandra has served on the Dancers' Group CA$H Grant and Pushfest 2017 Panels. She is the previous Managing Director of Robert Moses' Kin.
