February Photo Recap

February had us feeling the love for dance in Seattle. From the stirring Roméo et Juliette at PNB, to eclectic offerings at Chop Shop, and the final stage performances by the Trisha Brown Dance Company, we were pretty head over heels. There were also heartfelt local dance works like Two Headed Calf, and a mixed bill by newly formed troupe Collective Sigh, not to mention the kick off of Spectrum Dance Theater's provocative new season. And speaking of local dance, we were also able to chat with the innovators of Class Exchange, a new program that offers affordable, professional level classes.

Blast from the Past

Last February was host to some big performances on one very small stage. In Ten Tiny Dances, where dancers were limited to a 4' by 4' platform, we saw firsthand how "the restrictions of the performance act to generate honed and focused distillations of dance." Reminisce on these little gems of performance with our review and our interview with producer Sara Jinks.
