Hearst Choreographers-in-Residence
Three Conversations with the Artists

Karen Sherman, an award-winning performer and choreographer whose work draws from her background in dance, writing, theater, and the “handyman arts,” presents a conversation about her show Soft Goods, which examines work, disappearance, and the occupational self-obliteration of stagehands. Sherman will also discuss the work she’ll be creating during her residency. This is the final of three events for the inaugural Caroline Hearst Choreographers-in-Residence conversation series.

Attendance is limited to Princeton students, faculty and staff.
