RebollarDance presents:
40+

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.

Gatekeepers
Friday, May 5, 2017 . 7PM
Presented by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

A gatekeeper — whether an individual or part of an institution — decides which of a certain commodity, be it raw materials or ideological goods, may enter into a social system. These decisions are made within a complex web of influences, preferences, motives and common values.

With dance-theatre as the container, Gatekeepers seeks to unearth this complex web of influences as it relates to racial identity within structural inequity. Drawing from personal testimony, group storytelling and dialogue, this performance will invite and challenge the everyday gatekeeper to imagine sustainable methods of self-reflection and transformational communal action.

Tickets: Pay what you wish, no tickets required.
