On creating, living, and evolving as an artist through the 2020-2021 pandemic. 

A 90-minute event by Combustion Collective

Monday, February 8th, 2021, 7-8:30PM

In this 90-minute panel and networking event, past and present Combustion Collective collaborators will come together to discuss how they’ve adapted their artistic work to the conditions of the past year. All attendees will begin the workshop with a short grounding exercise led by yoga instructor Alexandra Peters, and then we’ll segue into a 45-minute panel discussion. 

In our panel discussion, several artists in our community will answer questions on the impact the pandemic has had on their creative lives, moderated by Combustion Collective’s Associate Artistic Director Rachel Lauren James. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.

After our discussion, attendees will be divided into breakout rooms where they will be able to share and connect with fellow artists. 

The event will conclude with a short guided centering and integration exercise. 

Panelists include: 

Avital Asuleen, NYC-based director/choreographer, and Artistic Director of Combustion Collective

Jeff Raab, Actor, Musician, and co-author of “Tonight For The Tapir”

Desiree Justin, Actor and Improvisor, performer in “The Floorshow”

Eoghan Hartley, Stage Manager of “The Floorshow”
