Talk of the Day: Andrew Simonet
The notion of making a living as an artist, even a decade or two ago, was a bit ridiculous. Today, the surge of various creative expressions are changing the way we build our lives and career, and the way we connect with one another. In this CreativeMornings/Philadelphia talk, Andrew Simonet talks about how to lead a sustainable life through your art, and challenges us to rethink the topics of career versus life, work versus impact.
Andrew is a choreographer and writer, and the founder of Artists U. He was, from 1993 to 2013, a founding co-director and choreographer of Philadelphia’s Headlong Dance Theater. His projects included CELL, a performance journey for one audience member at a time guided by your cell phone, and This Town is a Mystery, performances by four Philadelphia households in their homes, followed by a potluck dinner. His debut novel, The Rubber Room, will be published by Farrar Straus and Giroux in 2018.
