Calling all VT transplants in Washington, DC! Join us for an afternoon of dance and music performances in Montrose Park, Georgetown (by the tennis courts!) featuring dancers Lucia Gagliardone, Raeanna Grey, and Chloe Conway, and musician Norell Sherman. Created and curated by Lucia Gagliardone with the intention of bringing the community together to share in live performance, "The Hollow" showcases works of music and dance that contend with solitude, connection, bewilderment, grief, and healing.
Stone Valley Arts presents
TWELVE DANCERS / works-in-progress
a project of VITAL SPARK NORTH

Catamount Arts will host Dorrance Dance as part of the KCP Presents performing arts series. Dorrance Dance, founded by MacArthur Fellow Michelle Dorrance, will perform their Bessie-award winning "SOUNDspace," which the Washington Post called, "“a sonic distillation of a blistering American past and its perilous present, with a transcendent strength of spirit woven through.” Dorrance Dance embodies both the vivid history of tap dance and its explosive evolution, preserving and perfecting this truly American art form.
Playful, imaginative and inspirational, POP UP is inspired by the personal stories, memories and anecdotes of a community. The one-of-a-kind performances are the outcome of Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble's summer residency with the Hopkins Center this year during which they talked to scores of Upper Valley residents and students in preparation. During their stay, the ensemble also led workshops on Soundpainting—a universal sign language developed by composer Walter Thompson for live composition with improvisers.
Come be a part of the CONVERGENCE CELEBRATION! Since 2019, the Ask the River Project has travelled throughout Vermont, engaging communities with their watersheds and making beautiful 25’ silk cyanotype banners. On September 25th, we’ll gather from around the state in Brattleboro on the banks of the Connecticut River. Movement artists will lead us and 19 banners into one joyfully cascading, rippling and converging River. Bring friends and family! Pass the word upstream and downstream.
Are you an actor, dancer, singer or musician? Strike Anywhere invites you to be a performer in POP UP: An Artistic Adventure's "ephemeral choir." You'll learn Soundpainting, a form of live composition and improvisation, and perform in the POP UP finale.

In a ritual that accepts life and death, embodies the ancient and the contemporary, the stage is transformed into the holy site of Varanasi, India. Ragamala Dance Company evokes elaborate rites imbued with spiritual meaning. Elaborate pathways around the space summon the metaphorical crossing place with its sacred pilgrimage routes, the Ganges River and the patron deity Shiva. Age-old traditions are shared in a new homeland. Time is suspended. Humans merge with the divine.
Join me on Monday evening to talk about performing as a nonbinary person - how my gender has shaped my work and vice versa. I'll be showing some excerpts from A Singular They, including the evolution of the oldest work in the show from 2014-present, during which time quite a lot of gender has happened to it. We'll talk about what it's like to choreograph through transition and to make choices in presentation as a nonbinary person in a distinctly binary world.
...where two people show up,
give over, and have faith.
