June is shaping up to be a huge month in SLC dance. When big companies go off contract and dance students leave for summer projects it has often become a time of small workshops. But perhaps a signal that the independent scene is flourishing there is more in June than ever before.
STARTING WITH DEEP AEROBICS
Miguel Gutierrez will take the Rose by storm with with work-out form Death Emo Electric Protest Aerobics.
At a top secret time next weekend at the Rose Wagner you can practice and become a master practitioner of this incredible form.
Details are coming soon but we’ve been working with SB Dance (thank you!) to find times that work the best.
CONTINUING WITH MUDSON APPS & JOURNAL SUBMISSIONS
Selected choreographers receive $50 stipends and the opportunity to show their work-in-progress at the Masonic Temple.
Join the ranks of SLC choreographers who have tested out their work and gone on to present at local and national venues.
Volume 6. “Collaboration” is out and about featuring historical/theoretical essays alongside local reviews but we are already looking toward Volume 7.
Themed “Cycles” you can submit whatever it is you want. Whether it’s about somatic practice, performance trends, reflection on compositional strategies or pictures of you doing the same dance 85 times in a row you should send it to email@example.com
Submissions will be collected through August 1st.
