Amy Cova: Fall 2013 Fieldwork Facilitator Profile

This Fall, Fieldwork is being facilitated by AMY COVA, the Founder/Artistic Director of Amy Cova Dance. 

Amy's choreography has been commissioned by numerous institutions including the Detroit Institute of Art. Her company has been seen at Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out, the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, The Alvin Ailey Studio Theatre, TriskelionArts, The Flea Theater and Dance New Amsterdam. 

Most recently Cova premiered her evening length work Spinal Streets and a Straw as part of FLIC fest 2013. 

Having been a faculty member/guest artist at numerous universities including Oakland University and the University of Michigan, Cova is currently a Groundwork Artist in Residence at Shannon Hummel's Cora Dance and performs with Nadia Tykulsker/Spark(edit) Arts. 

We recently asked Amy why she wanted to facilitate Fieldwork,

"Fieldwork is a welcome and safe environment in which I can share my work. More importantly, it is a space that inspires learning, about one's own process and the process of experiencing the work of others. The process of offering feedback is generous and rich for both the artist sharing AND the artist witnessing and offering feedback." 

Fieldwork is a unique forum for artists to share developing works and exchange feedback, peer to peer. As a method for giving feedback, Fieldwork reveals how each piece is perceived by others and fosters a detailed information exchange. Incisive and stimulating critiques are guided by an experienced facilitator. Participants will meet weekly to share their developing works. To learn more, or sign up, click here.
