Who: ArtBark Local & Nancy Evans Dance Theatre
What: Bridges of Exchange: Being the Change
ArtBark, after a triumphant premiere of Alma.Sama at the Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana, grounds back into its local expression. Continuing with its local tradition of nurturing artistic excellence via creating golden bridges of lush performing and teaching opportunity to artists living in other regions of the world, they continue to invigorate the local arts scene with a studio showing of inter-active creative play, storytelling, improvisation, and contemporary dance. ArtBark Local will share elements created this summer and invites the audience to participate in creative play experiencing the joys of the co-creative process. Additionally, Hannah Ruth Brothers and Misa Kelly will share an excerpt from choreographic research they began this spring, and ArtBark choreographer Stephen Kelly will share a developing solo set on local dancer Nikki Pfieffer. Keeping the energy of exchange alive, the critically acclaimed Sierra Madre based company Nancy Evans Dance Theater returns to share 30 minutes of their world class contemporary dance featuring the choreography of Nancy Evans Doede, Jenn Logan, and European based artist Nikolaos Crist Doede.
