We welcome Crossroads Dance Indy to The Makers Lab this September for a two-month dance-making residency. Crossroads Dance Indy was founded in May 2015 when a group of Indianapolis-based dance artists came together to create artistic opportunities and outlets for inspired creativity. The mission of Crossroads Dance Indy is to establish community connections and impact local society through evolving artistic collaborations and works. We are elated to have Crossroads’ creative energy in our space and look forward to seeing the fruits of their residency.

This project will manifest as a series of videos featuring public art work in Indianapolis and dancers from South-Central Indiana. This aim is to challenge ourselves as dancers and choreographers to produce and perform, to collaborate with digital artists and traditional artists, and to bring further awareness to the tangible aspects of the vibrant art scene in Indianapolis and surrounding areas.
