Choreography: Building an Online Marketplace | Rick Tjia
How does a piece of choreography extend its lifespan and visibility beyond the point of creation? Why have both music and the visual arts speared ahead with copyright and licensing frameworks while dance lags far behind? Choreography Online is the world's first online choreography marketplace, paving the way for creators to not only license and sell their works to a global audience, but also others to purchase rights to a work of genius on demand!
Rick Tjia is a choreographer, composer, coach, and currently the co-founder/CEO of Choreography Online. Besides working for the Cirque du Soleil, he is also Patron of Phoenix Associates and I-PATH in the UK. As a dancer, he has performed for the likes of Twyla Tharp, Joe Layton and La La La Human Steps.
Kickstarting the month of Choreography, this episode explores the potential for selling and purchasing choreography through the digital terrain, while emphasizing the crucial necessity to establish more anti-plagiarism laws for dance.
