WHO’S IN THE ROOM

Kaitlin McCarthy meditates on four performances through the lens of “who’s in the room.” Includes Black Collectivity’s To Gather, Velocity’s Hybrid Lab, Four on the Floor’s Good for Her Age, and El Sueño’s Mestizo: Breaking the Caste.

TO GATHER WITH PURPOSE

“Here in Seattle many of us have the freedom to come together…To do so is a gauge of our own personal freedoms. How we show up for our communities matters as much as the art being shared.”

HISTORY INTO PRESENCE

Black Collectivity takes inspiration from Seattle’s Black dance legacy to create a stunning new work, bringing historical research into vibrant, living performance.

SPOTLIGHT: AKOIYA HARRIS

“At times we lend each other our sadness so that we can remember how to stand up. Carrying it all on our own will make us crumble. This ignited in me the desire to turn to community and start creating work through the support it offered me.”
