Join us for this free online screening of the “Eye on Dance” 200th Anniversary Program and live Q&A. In this webinar, presented by the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute, attendees will get to know “Eye on Dance,” the ground-breaking weekly interview television show created by Ohio State alumna Celia Ipiotis and videodance artist Jeff Bush. Featuring a diverse range of dance artists in lively discussion with Ipiotis, “Eye on Dance” excited the public about dancers’ creative work and stories during its run from 1981-2004. The resulting episodes and video footage comprise a distinctive research collection that catalogs dance in America during the time of the AIDS epidemic. This virtual event will live-stream the 200th program special, initially aired in 1986. The episode features clips from the first five years of the program with dance luminaries such as Dudley Williams, Anna Sokolow, Violette Verdy and many more. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of Ipiotis and a panel of dance artists and scholars.

This virtual program will include automated captioning. If you require accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please email libevents@osu.edu as soon as possible. Requests made at least one week prior to the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
