  • Adam Linder is a choreographer based between Berlin and Los Angeles, working both in theatre and visual art contexts. He has been developing a dance based  format he calls Choreographic Services since 2013. This aspect of his work is focused on underscoring real time and economic conditions that are integral to the discipline of  choreography. At Otis Linder will introduce this format both conceptually and practically, discussing why 'servicing' is the relevant way for his work to publicly engage.

Creative Action and the NEIGHBORGAPBRIDGE class presents a participatory installation investigating stress and comfort.
In this cultural probe participants are invited to share stories about their experiences of stress and descriptions of their beds, then crumble the paper they wrote on (to relieve the stress) and post the story on the wall in the Otis cafe. More info at neighborgapbridge.tumblr.com.

Fall 2013 students include Melvin Alvarez, Sophie Bertelsen, Jessica Chung, Negin Fashadgohar, Josh Hernandez, Joel Israel, Ben Kim, and Angela Wong. Special thanks to Simon in the Otis Cafe, Peter and Twin in Facilities, and Darren in the Otis Center for International Education.
