Porch View Dances: Online
Thu July 30th 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
This is an online event!
Join Kaeja d’Dance for an online iteration of PVD, premiering 16 new commissions – short dance videos made by some of this community’s amazing choreographers. Our 9th annual PVD is reimagined this year, livestreamed on Zoom. For the first time , our choreographers are dancing!
Traditionally, PVD pairs professional choreographers with community members to reveal stories of lives lived through original dances performed on their front porches and yards. For 2020, we have invited all of our past Porch View Dances choreographers to bring their own personal stories alive on their porches, balconies and front yards.
The livestreamed premiere of these works will be hosted by Maurycy and will be followed by a live interactive Flock Landing that you are invited to witness or to Dance With Us! We will then be joined by many of the choreographers for a live Q&A panel moderated by Karen Kaeja.
Featuring 16 new commissions by 18 choreographers: Kate Alton, Julia Aplin, Nova Bhattacharya, Barbara Bourget & Jay Hirabayashi, Michael Caldwell & Louis Laberge-Côté, Peter Chin, Lauren Cook, Allison Cummings, Aria Evans, Maxine Heppner, Shannon Litzenberger, Pulga Muchochoma, Andrea Nann, Kevin Ormsby, Kathleen Rea, and tiger princess dance projects.
The Flock Landing is led by Lilia Leon, with Mateo Galindo Torres, Josh Murphy, Mio Sakamoto and Irma Villafuerte.
