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