CCE Global Talks: Mind Your Business, Mind Your Mentor

37 views November 13, 2020 5:23 pm

CCE Global Talks discusses the dance community in 2020 with Pranita Nayar, Executive Artistic Director of Mandala South Asian Performing Arts, and Ashwaty Chennat, a movement artist, choreographer, and educator who was recently recognized as a 3arts Make A Wave artist.

Bios

Pranita Nayar:
Pranita Nayar founded Mandala Arts in 2014, where she serves as Executive Artistic Director. Pranita is a producer, curator, master teacher, and choreographer whose work is rooted in South Asian dance forms and their changing contexts within the diaspora. Pranita has been an exponent of Bharatanatyam in the Chicagoland region for over 30 years, and her path has flowed into the deconstruction of the movement vocabulary—from gesture to reassemblage. Pranita’s work has received many honors; she has been a Lab Artist with Chicago Dancemakers Forum (2016), has received three MacArthur Awards through her leadership for South Asian arts, and is an 11-time recipient of the Master Teacher award given by the Illinois Arts Council. Her work has been presented at Lincoln Center, The Smithsonian Institute, Harris Theater (Chicago), Olympics (Salt Lake City, 2002), and the MTV VMA’s (Shakira). She has taught residencies and workshops at Harvard University, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign and Chicago), Muhlenberg College, Franklin & Marshall College, Wayne State University, secondary schools and has worked intimately with Chicago Public Schools.

www.cceglobal.org

Ashwaty Chennat:
Ashwaty Chennat is a movement and theater artist, choreographer, and educator based in Chicago. She is a principal artist with Mandala Arts since 2016. Ashwaty began her extensive training in Southeast Michigan in Bharatanatyam (Sudha Chandrasekhar) and in ballet, jazz, and theater forms. Her current work explores collaborations with musicians; she works with jazz percussionist Alvin Cobb, Jr. to explore mental health narratives in communities of color, where they investigate rhythmic sequences found in Carnatic and jazz intersections. Ashwaty also collaborates with western classical musicians—in 2019, she set a contemporary movement to Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite (conductor: Sameer Patel, Chicago Sinfonietta), and in 2016, she collaborated with renowned international cellist, Mauro Valli, to create a movement for Bach’s Suite in D Minor. She looks to find new expressions by identifying movement within visual and sonic mediums. Ashwaty’s work has been presented at Chicago Symphony Center, the Art Institute of Chicago, McCormick Place (Chicago), the Logan Center for the Arts (Chicago), and Hill Auditorium (Ann Arbor).

8 views October 28, 2020 2:19 pm

The pandemic has caused massive shifts in the event industry. Curators have had to adapt to safety protocols, virtual spaces and figure out new ways to connect with audiences. We are excited to have Juan Teague, Lee Farmer, and David Chavez join us in discussing the change, opportunity, and future of event programming (virtual and live).

GUEST PANELIST: 

David Chavez
David is a festival curator and event organizer in the city of Chicago.  He's worked in the industry for over 15 years, presenting artists from all over the globe in venues and theaters as well as festivals across Chicago.  Throughout his career, he's helped broaden the audience for international music in the city, debuted many first time artists, helped launch music programs and festivals at various venues, commissioned new musical projects, consulted major arts and educational institutions, and helped open the city's first Music Industry Office.  

On behalf of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special events, he continues to be an integral curator of many festivals, including the Chicago World Music Festival, Millennium Park Music Series, Taste of Chicago, and founder of the Chicago House Music Festival.

Lee Farmer

Lee came up in the 80’s Chicago music scene under the mentorship of Chicago Icons like Mike “Hitman” Wilson, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Farley Jackmaster Funk, and Julian “Jumpin” Perez. He was fortunate enough to carry crates and be the “fly on the wall” for many legendary DJ sets and recording sessions, all before he graduated High School. After graduation, he joined the Navy and served in Desert Shield/DesertStorm. After serving his country, Lee returned to Chicago and was instrumental in forming record labels that spawned several international dance hits. Over the years, Lee has been DJ of the year for the Chicago R&B Soul awards, Co-founder of the Soul Selector DJ’s, Technical producer for VH1’s Master of the Mix television show, and music director for several national brand tours. 2017 saw Lee returning to the studio, which has resulted in a new release called “Stand Up & Dance” that Lee produced along with Grammy Award Winning Trumpeter Maurice Brown. He has also collaborated with his brother, professionally known as Freak Fineman, on the 2018 release called “This Could Be The Night,” Featuring GTO released on S&S Records. During the 2020 Coronavirus lockdown, Lee collaborated with Mariano’s grocery chain to create a virtual opportunity for artists, and “Virtual! Live at Mariano’s” was born. Lee and his team at the TCG Collective also created the virtual series “Studio Show Live” for the Illinois Lottery. They created the popular DJ series “Sundown Sounds” on Twitch, which has featured many well-known international DJs, including Louie Vega. Lee is currently the producer for the Silver Room digital series, which will air in October of 2020. Lee and his team were also the execution arm for the program that took home the coveted Platinum Trumpet Award from the Publicity Club of Chicago at the 2020 Golder Trumpet awards.

Michael Horn is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Learning Sciences at Northwestern University where he directs the Tangible Interaction Design and Learning (TIDAL) Lab. Michael serves as the Program Coordinator for the Learning Sciences PhD Program at Northwestern and is co-Founder of the new Joint PhD Program in Computer Science and Learning Sciences. Melanie West is a dynamic recording engineer, who is currently a Ph.D. student at Northwestern University and is on the TunePad Leadership team. She spent 10 years in the music business as a recording engineer in New York City where she worked with recording artists such as Madonna & Sade. She earned an Ampex Golden Reel and a Platinum album for her work with the Talking Heads. Melanie spent 10 years as the chief engineer of an experimental multimedia studio at Bell Laboratories. Izaiah is a computer science PhD candidate at Northwestern University working at the intersection of AI, creativity and computation. He is interested in designing music programming interactions such that it is a sustainable medium for artistic expression, helping students to learn coding through music and vice versa. Additionally, he is also interested in investigating ways to reimagine and foster coding culture in a way that considers the experiences, knowledge, and culture of Black youth. He earned his M.S. in computer Science at Northwestern University, and received his B.S. in electrical engineering at Morgan State University.
