Here is how it all works:
4 FINALISTS were selected by our panel:
Blythe Barton, Gina Bolles-Sorensen, Viviana Alcazar who reviewed 16 applications from choreographers originally from across the US and abroad.
Oct. 22nd the 4 choreographers get the same 4 mystery ingredients from our panel plus PGK DANCE director, Peter G. Kalivas.
The 4 then have 30 days to create a dance inspired by these ingredients. Works featuring more than 1 dancer preferred, minimum 2 minutes, any style.
Choreos get 1 mentoring session with Peter G. Kalivas
FINALLY, on Nov. 23rd 7pm all 4 Choreographers tell the audience what the experience was like and share the work they created.
NEXT: the audience has put into a bag, THEIR 5th ingredient then when 1 is selected the choreos get 30 more minutes to insert this any way they wish to their dance.
The audience can mill about and watch all unfold in each corner of the gallery WHILE Peter G. Kalivas with mic in hand checks in with each. "What are you gonna do?"
