HIGH from Our Casa with… CORE’s Sue Schroeder

COREdance is performing this Friday September 26 at 7 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. 

So we asked Artistic Director, Sue Schroeder a few questions!

image

1) What is your position at CORE Performance Company?

  • Artistic Director

2) What first drew you in to the dance world?

  • Seeing a solo danced by Karen Potter.

3) Someone you want to collaborate with:

  • Jenny Holzer

4) Favorite place to see dance in Atlanta?

  • Most any venue that is not a theater, though the Rialto would be my theater of choice.

5) 3 people (living or dead) you’d invite to a dinner party:

  • Remy Charlip, Joseph Campbell, and Marcela Lobos

6) What is your favorite type of music to dance to?

  • Most anything from New Orleans

7) Do you have any pre-performance rituals? If so what are they?

  • If I am performing, I find a place within the performance space to lay on the floor.  If I am not, I make sure to make contact with each performer before we begin.

8) Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?

  • Chocolate

9) Best piece of advice  you’d give a dancer before an audition:

  • Be yourself

10) What inspires you about the houses?

  • In their current arrangement, the depth of field.  I am also inspired by the simplicity of each individual structure which has given a sometimes complex sense to the choreography

WonderRoot has played a critical role in my own artistic development. I was amongst a group of twelve selected for the first Walthall Fellowship, a year-long artist development program.

2) How did you first get involved with creating art?

  • A passing trip through Marfa, Texas and the work of Donald Judd, John Chamberlain, and Dan Flavin. I speak about this, minimalism, and the journey from design to art: CLICK HERE!

3) Which artists inspire you?

  • Mike Stasny

4) Favorite place to see art in Atlanta?

  • There is so much happening right now around Atlanta. It’s everywhere.

5) Do you listen to music while you’re working? If so, what do you listen to when creating?

8) What advice would you give to a high school senior contemplating art school?

10) What about the houses inspires you?

  • My favorite thing is it acts as scaffolding for artistic interventions. It’s a framework.
