Оскорбленные чувства ['Feelings that offend'], the most recent novel of IWP alumna Alisa GANIEVA (IWP '12, '18), was launched in Moscow this summer. Alisa, who is among the 2018 jury members for the distinguished Neustadt Prize for International Literature, will be returning to Iowa this fall as a visiting writer at Grinnell College.
After a first trial run in the spring of 2012, when the IWP was invited to collaborate with the dynamic Battery Dance Company (link is external) of NYC during a reading tour on location in Fortalezza (Brazil), a second opportunity came our way in the fall of 2012. With “freedom” – the ability to move without constraints—as the keyword, writers submitted short texts, which then came to double as both inspiration and score for the dancers’ performances. - See more at: http://iwp.uiowa.edu/page/of-words-and-dance#sthash.LTrX6olj.dpuf
