“In the beginning, the Bridge Project had a focus on women choreographers. But it has expanded to focus on gender more broadly, a category that has become increasingly contested. As in 2016, the 2017 Bridge Project challenges the historically exclusionary scope of postmodernism to include artmaking and critical thinking from a range of perspectives. Participants come from multiple disciplines to respond to the prompt: What does it mean to have a radical body?”  --Director Hope Mohr
