As an anchor member of voices of dance (VOD) and member of State of the Arts (SOTA), groups that relay info between the cultural field and policy makers, Liz shares a workshop on the Fair Arts Almanac, a workbook, agenda, scribbler, full of testimonies and solutions, to open up discussions on fair practice in our various arts communities. This will be followed by a Community Talk from 12 – 1 pm, where we will sit together and engage in conversations around arts practices and values.


Liz Kinoshita was born in Toronto, Canada and moved to Europe in 2002. She studied at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, Belgium between 2004 and 2008. Liz has since worked with ZOO/Thomas Hauert, Tino Sehgal, Good Move/Eleanor Bauer, Hiatus/Daniel Linehan, among others, as well as making her own work with collaborators such as Clinton Stringer, Justin F. Kennedy, and Salka Ardal Rosengren. In 2013 she started her research into the mechanisms of the musical. In 2014 she created VOLCANO, a contemporary dance backstage musical performance. In 2017 Liz premiered Radical Empathy (commissioned by Den Danske Scenekunstskole) and You Can’t Take It With You, an in-the-round performance about waste vs necessity. Liz was part of the artistic team for West Side Story on Broadway, choreographed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and directed by Ivo van Hove. Liz’s new creation 11 O’clock is set to be shared on stage and screen in 2021-2023.
