The Dance Complex presents the winter 2010 Shared Choreographers’ Concert, titled “On Common Ground,” on Friday and Saturday, January 22 and 23rd, 2010 at 8 pm. The Concert will be held in the Julie Ince Thompson Theatre. Admission is $10 and tickets can be reserved in advance by calling 617.547.9363 or purchased in person (cash or cheque) at The Dance Complex, 536 Massachusetts Avenue, Central Square in Cambridge.
The Concert will feature works by choreographers Khary “KJ” Green, Kathy Hassinger, Heather McQuiston, Tom Clear and Catherine Wagner. This will be an eclectic program including pieces inspired by Greek Mythology, the classic story of Alice in Wonderland and 1980’s Hip-Hop/Jazz funk music, to name a few. The program is inspiring and expected to be a sell-out.
Each performance is followed by an audience Q & A.
Held three times each year, the Shared Choreographer’s Concert program provides an opportunity for new and developing artists to have their work produced in concert with their peers. Mentors provide guidance and feedback for the choreographers, dancers and producers from the first showing of an idea through, and beyond, the performances. It is also a vehicle for learning all aspects of producing, publicizing, designing, budgeting and documenting a concert; two dancers share these production responsibilities, under the guidance of the program mentor. These concerts are an extension of the learning process. Outside an academic program, artists often lack the supportive feedback and nurturing that is so crucial to their growth. A discussion with the audience follows each concert, providing an educational enrichment for all involved and a proven way of building an informed and committed following.
