Moving In SPACE: Works In Progress
Moving in SPACE: Works in Progress is a new contemporary dance/movement/performance series that for its debut will feature three works in development. The series aims to provide a much needed regional performance opportunity for works in development in the contemporary dance and performance scene. Three artists were selected through an open call by jurors choreographers/dancers Sara Juli, Riley Watts and Asher Woodworth to perform at SPACE’s inaugural Moving In SPACE performance.
Join us after the three performances for a chance to move with a DJ set by Ben Spalding.
