SoBo Studio Social Distance Show

Join us for the "SoBo Studio Social Distance Show" 4pm on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Outdoor stage at Living Memorial Park (aka Rotary Theater) at 61 Guilford Street in Brattleboro, VT! ALLLLLL the FEELINGS of quarantine wrapped into one demented bundle of joy, pain, confusion, and ecstatic despair. Dance, comedy, improv theater, storytelling, social commentary, political pontificating, more dance, a bit of tears, some laughter, and a post-apocalyptic fashion show! Your senses will be tickled, titillated, provoked and stroked!
OUTDOORS AND COVID SAFE!

Highlight House Party

Highlight House Party

Highlight “House Party” is virtual celebration for New Year’s Eve! To ring in 2021, the celebration will welcome hundreds of Vermont-grown performers to live-stream from their own stages at the new virtual festival grounds! Imagine entering this new space and journeying through hundreds of unique stages — watch a live concert, have tea with an artist, dance with an acrobat, take your kids to a make-your-own-art workshop, or tune in to a cooking class with an amateur chef (and yes, there will still be fireworks this year!). At this house party, you can do it all! It’s your house.

A Singular They - Work In Progress

A Singular They - Work In Progress

When change is who you are, who are you?

I've been working on this question for the last two years. A Singular They is some of the answer, in the form of a solo show for ground, aerials, and mobility apparatus. The works engage elements of identity and embodiment in a mosaic self-portrait, including an outsider's approach to masculinity, the way time changes with chronic pain, and what it's like to find freedom. It features pieces co-choreographed with Christal Brown, Nicole Dagesse, Polly Motley, NEVE, and Noah Witke Mele.
