The Pioneer Winter Collective’s Grass Stains, recently awarded support from the Knight Arts Challenge, seeks to provide a platform for South Florida-based choreographers, performance artists, and other live performance makers to come together bimonthly to create site-specific work throughout Miami. These performances will be free and open to the public.
Grass Stains seeks to bring professionals together for the sake of a common goal: pushing the boundaries of their practice and making that same work accessible to a wider audience. Grass Stains is in response to costly venue rental and theater fees, and the growing desire of artists to create work that is socially and culturally relevant to their community and showcase the landscape of Miami — accessibility. All work created will be documented and archived online for viewing.
Participating in Grass Stains will not only help local South Florida artists hone their skills in site-specific performance, but also allows them the opportunity to work one-on-one with noted Guggenheim Fellow and Bessie award-winning artist Stephan Koplowitz. Koplowitz will visit Miami from his position as Dean of Dance at Cal Arts to work with the participating choreographers in a rigorous site-specific week-long workshop, as well as making himself available for mentoring and correspondence for the extent of the Grass Stains project.
