Video: Festival 2020 - Interdisciplinary Arts Showcase

Interdisciplinary Arts students have produced, created and performed original work across divisions this year. They worked in studios and rehearsals developing and perfecting their craft in choreography and dance, creative writing, film and new media, music and songwriting, theatre, and visual arts. They host and produce Academy Café, a bi-weekly performance series where songs, poetry, video, and visual art by students at Interlochen can be shared in a café style setting. Interdisciplinary Arts student work can also be seen as part of the show One: Interlochen in Miami, which toured in March. In One, interdisciplinary arts students performed alongside students from the creative writing, singer-songwriter, classical music, theatre, and visual arts majors.

Seniors in this division are moving onto DePaul University, Skidmore College, Savannah School of Art & Design, The New School, Columbia College Chicago, and Eastern Michigan University. Congratulations to seniors Emma Arvoy, Hope Hanson, Marsh Henderson, Abby
Rice, Lily Rubin, Jenna Kamrow, and Paige Freeman.

Each interdisciplinary artist in this division makes work as an individual and in collaboration that reflects a wide range of styles and interest. For our Festival presentation we’ve curated a selection of this original student work that best showcases the range of talent and passion they bring to us each day. Thank you for supporting the artists at Interlochen.
