Calling creative choreographers interested in investigating possibilities of modifing dance through the use of alternative spaces. Each artist will be assigned a unique space in and around the Westbeth building in which they will have the opportunity to rehearse and build a dance. We ask that artists create one 4-5 minutes dance work that can be performed multiple times for groups of audiences touring the sites.
On the day of the show (April 29 and April 30) groups of audience members will be guided from site to site to see the dances all over the building. Past sites have included Westbeth’s inner and outer courtyards, long hallways, spiral staircases, the gallery space, boiler room, the rooftop and the Martha Graham Studio Theater.
