Project: The Ethical Spectacle: Applications of Creative Grassroots Activism to the Anti-Corruption Movement
Anderson will generate and curate creative content--dance, video, site-specific installation and visual design--that responds to institutional corruption, specifically within the context of the U.S. Congress. Her project’s ultimate goal is to test new kinds of creative outreach tools as prototypes for other anti-corruption organizers. Anderson earned a B.A. in Dance Choreography and Performance from Oberlin College in 2010. Later that year she co-founded In Noon Dance, a company of nine female artists in dance and related media, which became a sponsored project of the non-profit Creative Thought and Action in 2012. She received the 2012 Green Street Emerging Artist Award and a subsequent grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts to fund a set of three dance vignettes choreographed in response to the book Republic Lost, by Lawrence Lessig. She currently performs with the compositional improvisation ensemble Moved Louder.
