Select Moments 2015

2015 was our hottest year yet and included 8 intimate performances with 20 select choreographers and companies from the US and abroad, 5 guest artists, 55 performers and collaborators, 8 artist-led workshops, 2 thoughtful Talkbacks, a hard-working administrative and production team, enthusiastic volunteers and 645+ supporters of the performing arts.

To reminisce on the old and to bring on the new, we've summed up our favorite moments from our 2015 performances below. From gallery to stage, each artist presented a moment of their current musings and curiosities: the highly physical, the detailed and the surreal; feminine strength and collective power; rollerblades, drag and a bit of vogue; projected visuals and otherworldly live sound.

Thank you for making 2015 an even better year than it's last, and make sure to check back soon, as our Volume VI, Issue I. artists will be announced in January 2016!
