Cheers for Iron Tears

Another Kickstarter campaign we managed has hit its goal, woot! We love helping to raise support for some very cool projects. Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the new recording of Stephen Fandrich‘s “Iron Tears” with Gamelan Pacifica & Del Sol String Quartet.

The Oedipus/Antigone Project

“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.

The premiere of “Weave”

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!

Bebe Miller Company’s E-book is Live!

We’re excited for the launch of How Dancing is Built: The Making of In A Rhythm, a free e-book sharing the choreographic process behind Bebe Miller Company‘s evening-length dance work, “In A Rhythm” (2017). Hope you enjoy, and please share far and wide!

Thanks for the love

It was an honor and a thrill to both work on and witness the premiere of Morgan Thorson’s Public Love, a dance/music collaboration with Low’s Alan Sparhawk and a superstar lineup of dance artists. Congratulations to all! Next stop, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in March 2019!

Kickin’ butt on Kickstarter

We helped strategize and manage two separate Kickstarter campaigns over the past few weeks, and we’re so happy that both not only reached their goals, but went above and beyond them! Congrats to Peggy Piacenza and Morgan Thorson, and thanks to all for your support of these great projects. It takes a village, as they say.
