Beach Dances: Shared Practice Performances

Join us for a culminating performance of short site-responsive works developed during the week of Beach Dances by local choreographers.

Beach Dances: Shared Practice situates the practice and creation of dance in the daily life of the beach. While the artists work, you are invited into an open-air glimpse of the rehearsal room – and a new perspective on the movements of beachgoers around you. Join us throughout the week of Tuesday June 18-Sunday June 23 for open rehearsals, workshops and performances. Participating choreographers: Heyward Bracey & Nguyen Nguyen, Paola Escobar, Maya Gingery, Rebeca Hernandez, DaEun Jung, Shaina Lynn & Isabel Ivey, Carol McDowell, alexx shilling and Christine Suarez, plus Encounter (organized by Mariel Carranza). Beach Dances: Shared Practice is curated by Allison Wyper of Rhizomatic Arts.
