Artist-In-Residence at the American Swedish Institute

Sally Rousse served as ASI Artist-In-Residence from June 11— July 13, 2014.  Rousse was ‘on display’ in the historic Turnblad Mansion, where museum visitors were welcomed to adventure into the world of a dance artist, experiencing present time life of a practicing dancer/choreographer – warming up, taking class, choreographing, rehearsing, sewing shoes, scheduling, having costume fittings, communicating, building a barre. Artifacts and other evidence of her occupation evolved over the course of the residency. DanceMaker doubled as a creative workspace for Rousse, allowing her to explore the Eleanora character in a new dance production, KOM HIT!  KOM HIT! was co-created with Noah Bremer and premiered at the American Swedish Institute on June 24.
