Dancing Archivists: A Conversation By Hallie Chametzky and Sarah Nguyen HALLIE CHAMETZKY AND SARAH NGUYEN are archivist dance-makers who met at the Mark Morris Dance Group Archives, where Sarah was working and Hallie was visit- ing, in the fall of 2019. Since then, they have worked together at Dance/USA where Hallie is the Archiving Specialist and Sarah is a 2020/2021 Archiving & Preser- vation Fellow working with AXIS Dance Company. Their shared interest in how legacy, memory, materiality, and the sharing of information inform them as movement artists brings them together in this forum. What follows is a series of musings on how their relationship to making and thinking about dance and performance is intertwined with their professional archiving practices.
