RebollarDance presents:

Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 8 pm
Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 4 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Danced, choreographed, and directed by movement artists over the age of 40, this multi-media, collaborative concert will present experimental, cutting edge work from Erica Rebollar, Helanius Wilkins, Sharon Mansur, Sandra Lacy, Malcolm Shute, iselle Ruzany, and more. Designed to highlight seasoned, respected choreographers and dancers, this performance celebrates age and diversity.

In 2003, Erica Rebollar created a modern dance collaborative where multi-genre artists can make innovative work. RebollarDance examines dichotomies and fragmentations of physical behavior that explore boundaries of performance, using bodies, light, and sound as conceptual canvasses to evoke authentic, highly charged experiences for both dancers and audience. Rebollar Dance’s mission is to create and present cutting edge choreography that impact large and diverse audiences, examining movement as a facet of modern life and a laboratory for analyzing themes. Exploring choreography as innovation, RebollarDance promotes an artistic process of challenge and risk-taking.

Tickets: Advanced: Adults $20, Children, Seniors & Military $15. Door price $25. Buy tickets here. Credit card orders subject to $2 to $3 fee.

Experiencing Space Differently at Joe’s Movement Emporium, Apr 14

Experiencing Space Differently at Joe’s Movement Emporium, Apr 14

NextLOOK: Orange Grove Dance
The One-Mile Radius Project: Experiencing Space Differently
Friday, April 14, 2017 . 7PM
Presented by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Our human imprint and the memory of our movement linger in spaces well after we have migrated through them. The One-Mile Radius Project explores these imprints and the unique spaces within a one-mile radius of Joe’s Movement Emporium. In collaboration with Joe’s, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Brentwood Arts Exchange and their workshop participants, Orange Grove Dance will investigate the personal and uniquely traversed spaces of the community. Dance, film and projection will be used to zoom into and magnify the intimate nooks and crevices of seemingly familiar spaces and, in turn, bring those outside spaces inside the walls of Joe’s.

Founded in 2007 by Colette Krogol and Matthew Reeves, Orange Grove Dance is built on the ideals of integrating dance, art, film and movement with all communities, large and small.

Tickets: Pay what you wish, no tickets required.

MFA Dance candidates Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves present their thesis work in a joint concert that exhibits the overlap between Krogol’s exploration of her Cuban-American heritage and Reeve’s examination of origin myths and metaphors of darkness. The two choreographers present a unified performance — enhanced by interactive multimedia design elements — that explores the themes of waiting, transitions and transformations over time, juxtapositions of old and new and the possibilities of partnering and lifting.
