Can’t contain the excitement about being a founding co-producer of this new venture! Check out the (still-in-progress) website for a first glimpse of the inaugural Kicking & Screening: Live & Alone dance festival coming March 2020 to Providence, Rhode Island!
It’s absolutely inspiring to spend two weeks in a ballroom teeming with learning! We love our role in ensuring that this nationally-accredited program runs like clockwork. (The Feldenkrais Training Academy trains people to become Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners with the confidence and competence to build a successful practice in the Feldenkrais Methodof somatic education.)
We are thrilled to be supporting Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malavacías—2 Old Men—on their collaborative and individual choreographic and teaching projects. Lots of exciting things in the works—stay tuned!
“Merde!” to choreographer Lionel Popkin and his collaborators for the premiere of The Oedipus/Antigone Project, opening tonight at The Getty Villa in Los Angeles! Exploring exile and contemporary notions of homeland, this evening-length performance follows a journey of two outcasts looking for a way out of horrific circumstances, trying to maintain a sense of self while acknowledging that the gods are not on their side. D+B has loved working with Lionel on grant-writing for this project.
Congratulations to choreographer Peggy Piacenza on the opening of sweet, rotten, sweet at BONFIRE Gallery in Seattle! This video-installation, running all this month, reimagines her past choreographic works that deal with the nature of touch and the inevitability of mortality. And don’t miss the accompanying performances in the gallery! It’s been a total pleasure to work (again) with Peggy on strategic fundraising, promotion, and production for this very cool project.
What a joy to see the premiere of Rosy Simas Danse’s Weave this weekend at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, MN, and to spend time in this fantastic creative community. Congratulations to all! We’ve been happy to help with grant-writing and tour management for this project. Next stop, Alabama, then onto Philadelphia, Maui and Washington, DC!
