Performance and a Party - The Collective Seattle

Performance and a Party - The Collective Seattle

$18/advanced online ; $24/at the door.

A night of gathering, food, drinks, performance, music, and dancing. Basically, a performance and a party. In a new, beautiful space focused on gathering people and fostering community: The Collective Seattle.

This idea started in 2016 when Hannah Wendel and Elia Mrak set out to create a professional-level dance performance in a rustic, lo-fi space in New York City that would make virtuosic dance accessible and inviting to non-traditional theater goers. And include a live DJ and a dance party. We have since created Performance and a Party in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Atlantic City, and Seattle. Here is our 7th edition. Don’t miss it!

Contemporary Cypher (Workshop)

A week-long workshop in New York, as part of the Triskelion Arts Festival.

Click here to Register for Workshop

January 7-11, 2-4pm. $20/day. $90/week. ($17/day, $80/week before Jan 1st)

More info on the Never Before, Never Again festival.

This workshop combines Qigong, House Dance, and Flying Low.

It is based on the ancient cypher — a dance circle of energy that supports the individual inside of the group. We first connect to our breath to our movement, and then we add music to find joy through a groove. We advance into playing with floor work, partner practice, and movement games. At the end we blend it all into the art of performance and improvisation.
