Chris Elam Talks: ARTS EVERYWHERE

Chris Elam is the Artistic Director and CEO of Misnomer Dance Theater.

Elam’s choreography has toured the US and abroad, and the company has collaborated on projects with Bjork, the Sundance Channel, and Apple Computers.

An advocate for the smart use of technology for audience engagement in the arts, Elam has been an invited speaker at many of the country’s foremost arts, business and technology conferences, including Fortune Magazine’s Brainstorm: TECH, the National Arts Marketing Project, TEDxEast, and TEDxGotham.

Now you can book Chris Elam as a speaker for the following talk:

ARTS EVERYWHERE: WHEN SOCIAL PLATFORMS TAKE AUDIENCES ONLINE, OFFLINE AND EVERYWHERE IN BETWEEN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
What if something existed that made it easier for you to become involved as co-producer in the arts instead of just a member of the audience?

Chris captures the audience’s imagination through a unique presentation: a 5-minute dance performance followed by his return to the stage to talk about what usually happens after a typical theater performance.

Chris discusses how this sort of interaction affects our connection to the arts, and he shares insights into some of the new, disruptive innovations that are propelling the arts into becoming more much more integral to people’s daily lives. In an age of flash mobs, crowd sourcing and social media, artists from all disciplines are exploiting cross-boundary technologies to revitalize audience engagement and explode the status quo between audiences and artists.
