Work Nights, Edition #4

  • Wednesday, November 19, 2014, 7:30-8:30 pm

This will be the fourth in a series of informal showings of work being developed at the Conservatory—by our students, faculty and resident companies. Engaged as we are in the development of dance art and artists, our aim with these Worknights is to provide the dancers a chance to perform (albeit very informally) while giving audience members an opportunity to view dances in their early,
developmental stages. We do so in the belief that the creative process is often more apparent to viewers before the dance has been refined and polished for presentation onstage.

While there is a scary aspect to sharing work that is still in a raw state, we find a certain appeal in doing so. It is our hope that audience members will find what they see to be both informative and enjoyable. On display this evening will be tiny seeds of creation and ideas that are being fleshed out at various points in their evolution.

These will include snippets from:

Our Resident Companies:

  • Malinda LaVelle’s Project Thrust
  • Christian Burns’ burnsWork
  • Alex Ketley’s The Foundry

The Students of SFCD in Collaboration with:

  • Tristan Ching
  • Marlie Couto
  • Alex Ketley
  • Christian Burns

Complimentary light refreshments will be served following the 1-hour showing.
