Was SO AMAZING performing Small Boobs at Solo: A Festival of Dance at On the Boards in Seattle the first weekend in October. Thank you OtB staff, fellow performers, and all my old friends in Seattle for making this trip so worthwhile.
Here’s what’s coming up next:
Sunday, October 21, 2pm, North Berkeley: Super pumped to have been invited to perform at the Art/Food PARTY Extravaganza performance salon/fundraiser/general hang organized by and in support of the work of Molly Rose-Williams, a wonderful dancer and writer and thinker and person I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know out here. I’ll be offering a taste of the Small Boobs universe in the 2:00 hour of this show. It’s at a home studio in North Berkeley; address is in the Facebook event linked above.
Sundays, October 28 - November 11, 2-5pm: Workshop Series: Making & Responding to Solo Performance at the Shawl-Anderson Dance Center, Berkeley. Register here.
Workshop info: How do we talk to ourselves when we’re making work? How do we talk to each other? In this series, we will develop solo material from a foundational belief that we at once have what we need and need each other. We’ll get curious about the challenges and excitements shaping our processes, questioning attitudes that may get in our way and looking for what’s already working. We’ll practice responding to others’ work with tools drawn from non-violent communication and other values-based systems. This series makes particular space for artists working in multidisciplinary ways, and participants are invited to bring material they are already working on or to develop something new over the course of the series. Each participant will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with facilitator Nora Sharp. The series will culminate with a process showing on November 11.
Friday & Saturday, November 10 & 11, 8pm: Small Boobs at the Shawl-Anderson Dance Center, Berkeley. Tickets here.
Friday & Saturday, November 16 & 17, 7pm: Performing in Big Girl Panties, a new work by Chloe Grace Michels, at Waitlisted: An Evening of New Choreographic Works at Dovetail Studios, Chicago. Tickets here.
