2013 Season Preview
Join us this season as we enter our fourth decade of presenting world class contemporary dance. This summer we invite you to enjoy vibrant performances in the comfort of our newly air-conditioned Schaeffer Theatre. Whatever your dance interest, our 2013 series, featuring works by acclaimed choreographers and imaginative newcomers, will entertain, intrigue and inspire you.
Our 2013 season serves up a enticing array of works -- from the Middle Eastern sojourn of Nejla Yatkin/NY2Dance in Oasis, to the virtuosic sophistication of Doug Varone and Dancers with his latest masterpiece Mouths Above Water to the nuanced retrospective duet, A History by Bebe Miller Company, and the fascinating and innovative multimedia Voyeur by Bridgman | Packer Dance -- these astute artists bring commitment, curiosity and brilliant dancing to our stage. Our Different Voices concerts showcase new works by international and emerging choreographers while our ever-popular annual Musicians’ Concert and Moving in the Moment offer up the rich rewards of artistic collaboration among our community of artists in residence. Enriching these main stage events our weekly Show & Tell and Inside Dance pre-and post-performance talks provide a wealth of insight on the artists and their work.
Here at the Festival, we are dedicated to insuring critical support for the artists' creative process by taking an active role as commissioners and producers of new works. To that end, each summer we gather an international community of choreographers, performers, educators and students to study, create and perform. Through this community, the Festival encourages a creative exchange of ideas among artists and offers audiences a wide range of opportunities to experience contemporary dance, thus affirming the essential power of the arts to enrich our lives. Welcome to this vibrant gathering where the spirit of dance continues to thrive.
