Cheerfully apocalyptic since 2012...
the tinydance project began with the question of what dance and performance art would look like if we no longer had high tech resources available to us, and seeks to create dance in small, sustainable spaces.
The 4' by 8' tinydance stage can be towed by bike to performance venues. Presenting work in this way is intended to initiate conversations about observers' and participants' visions for the future of our world and ways in which we may (or may not) be preparing for major changes to our current way of life.
the tinydance project uses dance theatre and performance art to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions and events about issues related to sustainability. At the same time, we recognize that it is impractical and undesirable to live in a constant state of crisis, and so we approach the potential end of life as we know it with humor and good cheer.
The first piece created for the stage, "Where Shall We Go," was made for three dancers and a vocalist, and premiered at Earthdance on Aprill 22nd, 2013. Current repertory includes the duets "veins in the stones we carry" and "Tangled Layers." Please contact Kelly if you are interested in having a tinydance created for or performed at an event, either on the tinydance stage or in a small, site-specific space of your choosing.
These are some other ways you can support the project.
