  1. […] Lida Winfield spoke to us for a second time. In 2018, we discussed Winfield’s choreography and her role as an educator among other things. When the pandemic began, she was teaching at Middlebury College. She calls it an amazing moment of events. At the time, Winfield was in the process of creating a five person collaborative piece with other artists in residence where she was. As they were getting ready to open, Winfield got word that her father had been hospitalized with presumptive COVID.
