Kindling 2020: TWIST & FLIP
2020 marks the eighth season of Kindling at IPAY Showcase. Launched at Showcase 2013 in Philadelphia with a focus on Creative Catalysts, Kindling celebrates and explores individuals and organizations who are pushing the boundaries of performing arts for young audiences. Kindling continues to be a platform for open discussion and dialogue—a place to spark, question, and share ideas and dreams for the development of our entire sector.
Kindling at Showcase includes a varied selection of invited guest thought leaders, partner network sharing, artistic masterclasses, kitchen table open dialogues, and connections to Showcase or Spotlight productions. This year, TWIST & FLIP Kindling 2020 will combine sessions proposed by members through Accelerant with a curated program of workshops, plenaries, and dialogues, to turn the spotlight on CIRCUS and DANCE for young audiences. TWIST & FLIP will provide daily opportunities for learning and cross-cultural exchange, focusing on the unique capabilities of circus and dance makers and innovative approaches to engagement, producing, presenting, and touring.
