Artist Soapbox Presents

Artistic Director ShaLeigh Comerford

How do we do the impossible? Choreographer ShaLeigh Comerford explores collaboration and sustainability with host Tamara Kissane. 

Creating a sustainable revenue stream for artists often seems impossible – how do we do the impossible? ShaLeigh Comerford, dancer, choreographer, and the Artistic  Director of ShaLeigh Dance Works  discusses how she and her dancers create original work through collaborative questioning, her quest to attain financial sustainability, and arts activism. We also learn about two movement languages – Gaga, and ShaLeigh’s own Shaga.
